ME PhD Candidates Yuqing Zhou and Sambit Das, and ME PhD Precandidate Sarah Verner are the recipients of a 2016-2017 MICDE Fellowship. For the 2016-2017 academic year, MICDE received more than 60 applications of extraordinary quality.

Since 2014, MICDE has offered top-off fellowships to current and prospective students whose research project involves the use and advancement of scientific computing techniques and practices. These fellowships, which carry a $4,000 stipend, are meant to augment other sources of funding and are available to students in both the Ph.D in Scientific Computing and the Graduate Certificate Program in Computational Discovery and Engineering. Fellows may use the funds to attend a conference, buy a computer, or any other advisor-approved activity that will enhance her/his graduate experience. Fellows are encouraged to attend the MICDE seminar series and to present a poster at the MICDE Annual Symposium.

Zhou’s advisor is ME Professor Kazu Saitou; Das and Verner’s advisor is ME Associate Professor Vikram Gavini.
