Jonathan Thomas, Ph.D. student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been chosen as a Koerner Famly Fellow for the academic year 2003-2004. The fellowships, which total between $75,000 and $100,000 a year, specify that award recipients must be studying toward a Ph.D. with a high likelihood of seeking an academic career upon graduation.
The Koerner family established the fellowships in honor of their many years of association with the University. Dr. Robert M. Koerner '56 '63, H. L. Bowman Professor of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering, his wife Paula, and their children-George, Michael, and Pauline-have accumulated four bachelor degrees, two master's degrees, and a Ph.D. degree from Drexel, where collectively they have been employed and educated for ninety years.
