Congratulations to Quentin Jallerat, who has been awarded a Dowd-ICES Graduate Student Fellowship for the 2011-2012 academic year. The Philip and Marsha Dowd Engineering Seed Fund was established in 2001 through a generous gift to the College of Engineering (CIT) from Philip (B.S. Materials Science and Engineering, 1963) and Marsha Dowd. This fellowship grant program, administered through ICES, provides support for graduate students working on cutting edge research projects which do not have other sources of funding.
The Dowd Innovation Seed Fund, http://www.dowdseedfund.com/, is specifically designed to foster innovative new ideas at CMU.
