According to an April 1 NSF press release, NSF announced 2000 recipients of the Graduate Research Fellowships (GRF). 11 of these were awarded to statistics students. Congratulations to these 2014 recipients:

If you are curious what the most represented baccalaureate institutions are, here are the top 20 of 476 institutions for the 2014 awards (which represents 547 of the 2000 GRF awardees):

For GRF proposal funding rate information, I received this email from the administrators on 6/30/14:

For GRF proposal funding rate information, I received this email from the administrators on 6/30/14:

For the 2014 GRFP, NSF received over 14,000 submitted applications and made 2,000 awards. For the 2012 and 2013 competitions, NSF received over 13,000 applications each year, and made 2,000 awards. Beyond that, we regret that we are unable to provide any statistics about the applicant or awardee pool.See other ASA Science Policy blog entries.
