Sloan Fellowship Awarded to MSE Student
Congratulations to Kerisha Williams on being awarded the prestigious Sloan Foundation Fellowship.
This fellowship is sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and seeks to increase the number of outstanding engineering Ph.D. graduates from under-represented populations (i.e. African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans). The program provides three years of support for students who have recently completed the Ph.D. Qualifying/Preliminary exam. The award provides a $10k topper stipend for 3 years and over those 3 years, an additional $10k to be used for professional development, travel, research supplies, books, and more.
