Byron was selected as a recipient fellow for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).
Under the advisement of Dr. Cruz, Byron worked hard in his first semester of the program developing and writing an exceptional fellowship application to submit to the NSF. The NSF GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements. The NSF fellowship is a prestigious, highly competitive, and nationally recognized award and we want to congratulate Byron for submitting a successful fellowship application and representing the lab! Byron will now receive three years of funding support from NSF to help him pursue his research at the next level. As a result of his efforts, Byron was highlighted by the psychology department at USU for October’s “Student Spotlight”.
