Eight Buckeye engineers have been awarded a 2019 Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation (NSF) following a national competition. NSF’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) recognizes and supports graduate students who show immense promise as researchers and leaders in science and engineering.

CSE's own Jayson Boubin was one of the eight Buckeyes selected. Jayson is developing an open source software suite to support aerial systems, which can be implemented for agricultural purposes such as yield monitoring and crop scouting.

The Ohio State University College of Engineering was represented by three current graduate students and five alumni. The awardees were selected out of more than 12,000 applicants. GRFP is a critical program in NSF's overall strategy to develop a globally engaged workforce necessary to ensure the nation's leadership in advancing science and engineering research and innovation. It provides three years of financial support within a five-year fellowship period— $34,000 annual stipend and $12,000 cost-of-education allowance to the graduate institution. That support is for graduate study that leads to a research-based master's or doctoral degree in a STEM field.
