The University of Kentucky Office of Nationally Competitive Awards has announced that 12 of the university's students and alumni have been selected to receive government-funded National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships. The fellowships award more than $100,000 to use toward research-based master's or doctoral degrees.

This year's selection of a dozen UK students and alumni for NSF Graduate Research Fellowships is believed to be the largest in the school's history and is four times the number of selections for 2015.

Included among UK’s newest NSF fellows is Sarah Barney, a 2014 natural resources and environmental science graduate from Lexington, who will pursue research in ecology at University of Michigan.
