Computer Science PhD student Tyler Cultice has received the 2022 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation. Cultice is studying Quantum Computing Security with Associate Professor Himanshu Thapliyal.
“His selection as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow is a highly significant national accomplishment,” said Thapliyal, “and it places him amongst an elite group of fellows who have gone on to distinguished careers in STEM or STEM education.”
The purpose of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is to help ensure the quality, vitality, and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. The GRFP provides three years of support over a five-year fellowship period for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. NSF actively encourages women, persons who are members of groups historically underrepresented in STEM, persons with disabilities, veterans, and undergraduate seniors to apply.
