Georgia College student receives National Science Foundation award

Three years of research on how plants respond to their environment has led Georgia College senior Anne Zimmerman to be recognized among the top science students in the country. She was awarded the prestigious honor of being a part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

"I am thrilled to receive this fellowship with NSF," said Zimmerman. "I had no idea my proposal was accepted until I got an email of congratulations from my future graduate school. Then I checked the list online and saw my name was included. Apparently my email from NSF had gone to my spam folder, so to say I was excited and thrilled for this opportunity is an understatement."
