Grad Student Summer Research Fellows Named

Three Clark School students have been awarded Graduate Student Summer Research Fellowships by the University of Maryland Graduate School.

The Clark School winners are: Kevin Galloway (electrical and computer engineering [ECE]), Anshu Rastogi (bioengineering) and Steven Tjoa (ECE).

This is the pilot year for the fellowship program, a companion program to the Flagship Fellowships and the Wylie Dissertation Fellowships. Summer Research Fellowships are intended to provide support to doctoral students at "mid-career," that is, in the period approximately before, during, or after achievement of candidacy.

The Fellowships will enable doctoral students to devote a summer of focused work to preparing for or completing a benchmark in their program’s requirements. The specific goal of the program is to help doctoral students take a significant step forward in their studies in a timely manner; the overall goals are to reduce time-to-degree, to increase degree completion, and to enhance the quality of the graduate student experience.
