Congratulations to Boris Mesits who has won an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship! He is supported to work on ultrasensitive superconducting magnetometry and electron spin resonance in the laboratory of Michael Hatridge.

We'd also like to congratulate Evan McKinney, advised by Michael Hatridge and Alex Jones, who won honorable mention for his proposal on studying architectures for modular quantum computing with superconducting circuits.

The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program ( NSF GRFP) recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported STEM disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited US institutions.As the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, the GRFP has a long history of selecting recipients who achieve high levels of success in their future academic and professional careers. The reputation of the GRFP follows recipients and often helps them become life-long leaders that contribute significantly to both scientific innovation and teaching.
