2017 NSF Research Fellow: Samantha Scibelli  

Seven Stony Brook student researchers earned prestigious fellowships from the 2017 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).

“Stony Brook students, both graduate and undergraduate, have again demonstrated their outstanding potential for cutting-edge research. This year’s seven NSF GRF recipients span a remarkable range of science disciplines, showing the strengths of research activities across the University,” Interim Vice President for Research Rich Reeder said. “The funding provided by these fellowships permits students to pursue graduate education and research in areas of their choosing. These GRF awards also provide a nice addition to Stony Brook’s research funding.”

Physics Major Samantha Scibelli earns the Graduate Reasearch fellowship. Her research focus is in astrophysics, specifically in star formation where she uses long-wavelength telescopes to peer into the depths of dense clouds to uncover the origins of stars and planets. She plans to pursue a PhD in Astronomy and Astrophysics at The University of Arizona in the fall.
