Dear active_axon

Congratulations! I am pleased to inform you that you have been selected to receive a 2008 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) award. This award is based on your abilities and accomplishments as well as your potential to contribute to strengthening the vitality of the U.S. science and engineering enterprise.


"This applicant came to his graduate institution with impressive credentials and his proposed work continues the trend. As an undergraduate he amassed exceptional research experience, progressing from contributions within a research team to proposing and conducting innovative, independent research projects. He brings his work to fruition. He has two presentations and one co-authored journal article at this early stage in his career. More important, he contributed at every stage of the journal (in Child Development) including the writing. His planned work shows great potential to produce significant findings in a new area of research."
-One of the reviewers of my application.

I am so excited that my hands are shaking. This is simply the best way to possibly start the day, at least when Laura's in St. Louis.
