Eleven University of Georgia students and alumni received graduate research fellowships this spring from the National Science Foundation.

They include Michael Burel, of Acworth, who graduated from UGA in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in cellular biology and a certificate in interdisciplinary writing; Addison Wright, of Marietta, who graduated from UGA in 2013 a double major in history and biochemistry and molecular biology.

The program fellowships, which recognize and support outstanding graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, are among the most competitive in the United States. The NSF received more than 14,000 applications for the 2014 competition, and made 2,000 fellowship award offers.
