Graduate student Anneliese Brei was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship for 2023.
Brei is a first-year computer science doctoral student working with assistant professor Snigdha Chaturvedi. Her research interests include natural language processing, narrative understanding, generation and summarization, narrative intelligence, and ethical AI. Brei joined the department in the fall of 2022 after completing a bachelor’s degree in computer science at the College of William and Mary.
The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program supports fellowships for outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time, research-based masters and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering or math or STEM education. The program will provide a $37,000 stipend and $12,000 cost of education allowance each year for three years. The award is very competitive, with an acceptance rate typically between 15 and 20 percent.
Brei is also supported by The Graduate School at UNC as a member of the Royster Society of Fellows, which is UNC’s premier doctoral recruitment fellowship. Brei expressed gratitude for NSF grant proposal workshops provided to Royster Fellows during the application process.
