BYU grads receive National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowships

Four Brigham Young University graduates were recently awarded the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship for 2004.

David Comstock, Christopher Monson, Scott Raymond and John Russ were four of about 170 students who received the fellowship, which covers all tuition and fees for three years, as well as a yearly stipend of more than $27,000.

The U.S. Department of Defense awards NDSEG fellowships to about 8,000 students annually.

The students are usually in the early stages of their graduate studies pursuing doctoral degrees in fields of science and engineering that are of military importance.

Comstock graduated from BYU in mechanical engineering in 1999. He is pursuing a graduate degree in materials science and engineering.

Monson graduated from BYU in chemistry and is currently a graduate student in chemistry at the University of California-Berkeley. He also received the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship for 2004-2005.

Raymond graduated in neuroscience and applied physics with a minor in mathematics at BYU. He also received the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship for 2003-2004, the Ashford Fellowship at Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and was named a Hertz Foundation Fellowship finalist this year.

Russ is majoring in electrical e ngineering with a minor in mathematics. He plans to earn his doctorate degree in electrical engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

For years now, 10,000 steps a day has become the gold standard for people trying to improve their health — and recent research shows some benefits can come from even just 7,500 steps. But if you’re trying to prevent weight gain, a new Brigham Young University study suggests no number of steps alone will do the trick.
