For the first time, 23 of the 33 Georgia Tech recipients are women. This year’s winners represent areas of study ranging from aerospace engineering to theoretical chemistry. In addition, 48 current Georgia Tech students received an honorable mention designation from NSF.

The purpose of the GRF initiative, the oldest of NSF’s programs, is to foster experts who will contribute significantly to research, teaching and innovations in science and engineering.
