Two Carleton Geology People Awarded NSF Fellowships

20 April 2010

We are proud to report that two Carleton geology majors have been awarded National Science Foundation graduate research fellowships!  The fellowships provide graduate students with three years of support worth a total of over $100,000.  The fellowships carry annual stipends of $30,000 plus a one-time allowance of $11,500 for education-related expenses.
Among the ten winners of fellowships this year from Carleton were two Carleton geology majors:  Kristin Bergmann ’04, who is attending the California Institute of Technology and Sam Kanner ’10, who will be attending the University of California-Berkeley.

Also, the eight honorable mentions in the competition from Carleton included geology alums Tyler Mackey and Lydia Staisch, both ’08.
