Two Colorado College Graduates Awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellowships

Two recent Colorado College graduates have been awarded National Science Foundation fellowships. P. Zion Klos '09 and Marie Hoerner '09, both geology majors, are recipients of the 2010 Graduate Research Fellowships. Hoerner is enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the University of Chicago, and Klos is finishing a year of service as a paraprofessional at Colorado College and will begin his Ph.D. at University of Idaho in the fall.
They join Jonathan Rotzien '07, also a geology major, who received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship last year, and currently is pursuing a Ph.D. at Stanford University. Additionally, Justin Strauss '06 received an honorable mention from the program.
The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master's and doctoral degrees in the U.S. and abroad. Fellows benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $30,000 along with a $10,500 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees, a one-time $1,000 international travel allowance and the freedom to conduct their own research at any accredited U.S. or foreign institution of graduate education.
