DURHAM, N.H. - University of New Hampshire graduate student Julie Barkman has won a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, an award that provides three years of financial assistance allowing recipients to pursue research full time.
The fellowship, won through national competition, supports graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Barkman, from Livonia, Michigan, will receive her master's in geology from UNH this summer and then begin her doctoral studies through the natural resources and Earth systems science program at UNH.
Her research concentrates on using isotopic geochemistry to study high-temperature magmatic processes occurring within the Earth's crust, with the goal of enhancing understanding of the origins and transportation of continental magmas.
The University of New Hampshire, founded in 1866, is a world-class public research university with the feel of a New England liberal arts college. A land, sea and space-grant university, UNH is the state's flagship public institution, enrolling 11,800 undergraduate and 2,400 graduate students.
