Graduate Students Al-Housseiny and Maksimov Awarded Honorific Fellowships
Two CBE graduate students have been awarded Honorific Fellowships by the Princeton University Graduate School for the 2013-14 academic year, which will provide full tuition and stipend for their fifth and final year of Ph.D. study. Talal Al-Housseiny, who is working with Professor Howard Stone, will receive a Wallace Memorial Fellowship in Engineering, while Mikhail Maksimov, who is working with Professor Jamie Link, will receive a Harold W. Dodds Fellowship. A total of 20-30 Honorific Fellowships are awarded annually across the entire University; on the basis of departmental nominations, a faculty committee recommends individuals who have demonstrated excellence in their scholarship and who give promise of exceptionally distinguished careers. Honorific Fellows will be recognized at a dinner organized by the Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni in the early Fall.
