Assist us in congratulating Jaquesta Adams as a 2020 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow. On May 22, 2020, President Frederick shared this great news with the Howard University community and had this to say:
"It is with great pride that I announce Jaquesta Adams as a 2020 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow.
Adams is a member of the Class of 2020, earning a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with a minor in math and biology. A native of Opa Locka, Florida, she made history in 2019 as the first Howard University student to receive the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship. She has also received several awards from the Department of Chemistry.
In the fall, Adams will attend the University of California, Berkeley to pursue a doctoral degree in chemistry. As an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, she will receive a three-year annual stipend as well as an allowance to cover the cost of tuition and fees. She will also have opportunities for international research and professional development, and the freedom to conduct her own research.
This announcement is another testament of Howard’s commitment to academic excellence and create pathways for leadership in STEM. Please join me in congratulating Ms. Adams on this outstanding achievement!"
