Five ME Students Receive 2018 NSF GRFP awards

Five ME graduate students received NSF GRFP (National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program) awards this year. The NSF GRFP's goal is to increase the nation's human capacity in science and engineering by providing fellowships to early-career graduate students to support the development of a diverse and globally engaged U.S. science and engineering workforce. The recipients are:

ME students receive 2018 ME Departmental Awards

The ME Department would like to recognize the following students who have received honors and awards for their accomplishments.

Alexander Azarkhin Fellowship
This scholarship is presented to a U-M ME Ph.D. student who has an interest in Applied Mechanics. Alexander Azarkhin, who came to the U.S. from Russia to earn a second Ph.D, gifted it. After the U-M ME Department provided him with some much-needed assistance by helping to fund his studies, Azarkhin later decided to pay-it-forward by establishing this award for graduate students in ME. 

Wu receives 2018 Ivor K. McIvor Award

PhD student Bin Wu is a recipient of the 2017 Ivor K. McIvor Award from the College of Engineering.

This award, established to honor the memory of I.K. McIvor, the late and last Chairperson of the Applied Mechanics and Engineering Science Department in the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan, is presented annually to senior graduate students who have demonstrated excellence in research and scholarship in applied mechanics.
