Electrical Engineering student receives NSF Fellowship award

April 1, 2015

CLEMSON – Electrical Engineering  senior Matthew Byrd was named as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) award recipient this March.

According to the NSF, applicants must be undergraduate seniors or first or second year graduate students “pursuing a research-based master’s or doctoral degree at an accredited US institution in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields supported by NSF.” 1,000 students received awards from a pool of 17,000 applicants.

The NSF selected award recipients based upon intellectual merit and activities or projects involving broader impacts than individual education goals. The fellowship provides recipients with three years of tuition payments as well as a yearly $30,000 stipend.

The Holcombe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering would like to congratulate Mr. Byrd on his accomplishments and outstanding work at Clemson to date and are excited to be a part of his research, science, and discovery in the years to come.
