With graduation just around the corner, three senior engineering students have a little extra to celebrate this year. Matthew Bandelt CEE ’10 and Jessica Shaw CEE ’10 were selected to receive the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Fellowship Award, while Kent Grosh ME ’10 was awarded one of two Fulbright Teaching Assistantships to Nepal.
“We are thrilled that these students have been recognized for their hard work and talent with such prestigious awards,” says Dr. Gerard Jones, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies.
The National Science Foundation’s Graduate Fellowship Award, the oldest graduate fellowship of its kind, recognizes outstanding students who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines. The Fulbright Program is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.
