MCS Students Receive Presidential Fellowships and Scholarships

MCS Students Receive Presidential Fellowships and Scholarships

Twelve graduate students and four undergraduates in MCS have received Presidential Fellowships and Scholarships. Launched in 2014 by President Subra Suresh, the Presidential Fellowship and Scholarship program provides critical financial support to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students across all of CMU’s seven colleges and schools. Presidential Scholarships provide undergraduate students partial support for tuition and fees. Presidential Fellowships help to attract and retain outstanding graduate students, and give students and their faculty mentors critical financial security and flexibility that allow them to develop impactful research.
