Best nuclear physics programs

Since 1958, MSU has been known for its innovations in nuclear science, making an impact in the United States and around the world. Michigan State’s nuclear physics graduate program has ranked number one since 2010, and 26 percent of U.S. nuclear physics graduate students receive part of their training at MSU. That makes FRIB an important part of educating the next generation of nuclear scientists.

FRIB provides a learning environment for its students and encourages their educational experience. Below is a list of students who have received fellowships, scholarships, and other honors during their time at FRIB.
