Twenty-two UA students and alumni have been selected for the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program, which provides substantial funding over a three-year period for graduate studies in STEM areas.
While working toward advanced degrees, UA graduate students are also producing new knowledge, marketing products, and forming companies that address significant challenges facing our state, nation and world.
UA senior Steven Palmer, who grew up watching “Wheel of Fortune,” recently earned a spot as a contestant on the popular game show. Palmer, who appeared on the show this week, took home $11,283 in cash and prizes, which included a trip for two to Hawaii.
UA professors Mary C. Stiner and Jonathan T. Overpeck have been appointed as Regents' Professors, an honor reserved for faculty members whose exceptional achievements merit national and international distinction.
