Cleve Young is one of five University of Nebraska–Lincoln graduating seniors who have been offered 2023 Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The program, the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, helps ensure the quality, vitality, and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce of the United States and broaden participation of underrepresented groups. The program supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines with a stipend, cost of education allowance, and opportunities for professional development.

Young, a mathematics major who will earn a bachelor's degree in May, has worked on the Algebra Project and other projects in mathematics education with advisor Yvonne Lai. He is an NSF Research Fellow and plans to pursue a doctoral degree in mathematics at Nebraska, where he has also received an Othmer Fellowship.
