The 2009-2010 Koerner, Hill, and Mozino Fellowships have been announced.
Ph.D. student Matthew Hood (advisor: Christopher Li) is the MSE recipient of this year's Koerner Family Fellowship. Fellowship recipients must be Ph.D. candidates and are selected for their particular interest in pursuing a career in academia.
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 over ninety years.
Additionally, Ph.D. student Amanda Levinson (advisor: Surya Kalidindi) is the recipient of the George Hill, Jr. Fellowship. The George Hill, Jr. Endowed Fellowship, established in 1991, is awarded to qualified Ph.D. candidates in the College of Engineering. Recipients must have proven excellence in their undergraduate and graduate careers and must be able to demonstrate their potential to achieve academic excellence at the Ph.D. level, in addition to a strong interest in pursuing a career in academia.
The Joseph S. Mozino Scholarship has been awarded to Ph.D. student Giacomo Landi (advisor: Surya Kalidindi). This scholarship was established through the generosity of Dr. Joseph S. Mozino, Class of 1925, for the recognition of outstanding scholarly and professional achievement on the part of a graduate student in the College of Engineering. It is an annual renewable scholarship, awarded to citizens of Italy, based upon academic achievement and financial need. Preference is given to students who possess an undergraduate degree in engineering. Selection is made by the dean of the College of Engineering and the Graduate Admissions Office.
