Ripon College alumni, seniors earn National Science Foundation honors

David Garcia ’14 and Raymond Allen ’15 have been awarded 2017 National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowships.

Garcia is from West Chicago, Illinois. At Ripon, he majored in history and chemistry and minored in economics. He now is studying at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.

Allen is from Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. At Ripon, he majored in chemistry-biology and minored in Latin. He now is studying at Duke University.

Winning honorable mentions were: Robert Enright ’17 of Stevens Point, Wisconsin, a chemistry major with minors in Spanish and physics; and Emily Cliff ’17 of Mukwonago, Wisconsin, a chemistry major and biology minor.

“The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship is arguably the most sought-after award by science graduate students in the United States,” said Patrick Willoughby, campus adviser for the NSF Graduate Fellowship. “As a former recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, this program transformed my own career prospects by providing me an award that was highly respected and recognizable. The accomplishments by these students are very impressive and further demonstrate that Ripon College alumni can compete at high levels on a national stage.”
