He is one of 496 recipients of the scholarship, which recognizes second- and third-year college students intending to pursue research careers in mathematics, engineering and the natural sciences. A total of 1,223 students were nominated by 443 academic institutions for the award, which provides up to $7,500 per undergraduate year for tuition, mandatory fees, books, room and board.
Suh, a native of South Korea who came to Carnegie Mellon from New Jersey, plans to enter a Ph.D. program in mathematics after graduation, with a focus on research in descriptive set theory and analysis.
