Graduate Students Shepard and Khoury Awarded Honorific Fellowships
Two fourth-year CBE doctoral students have been awarded 2014-15 Honorific Fellowships by the Princeton University Graduate School, which will provide full tuition and stipend for their fifth and final year of Ph.D. study. Kimberly Shepard, who is working with Professors Rodney Priestley and Craig Arnold (MAE), will receive a Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship, while George Khoury, who is working with Professor Christodoulos Floudas, will receive a Wallace Memorial Fellowship in Engineering. 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. Jacobus Fellowships are reserved for the four students, one from each division of the University, who demonstrate the highest scholarly excellence.
