Physics graduate student and U.S. Army veteran Luis Morales is one of 11 military veterans who was honored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) with Graduate Research Fellowships on November 5, 2014 in Washington, D.C. During the official visit to the NSF headquarters, the group was recognized with a formal ceremony highlighting veterans and their contributions to the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. The 11 fellows also participated in a poster session to discuss their research and personal motivations in pursuing graduate school in their field of interest.
After serving in the Army, Morales moved to Elkhart, Ind. and began working in the Nuclear Science Laboratory at Notre Dame in 2011 while he was an undergraduate student at Indiana University – South Bend.
