Three receive Alumni Association Dissertation Awards

Three graduate students from the College of Engineering received Penn State Alumni Association Dissertation Awards this spring in recognition of their outstanding achievement in scholarship and professional accomplishments.

The students are: Ashkar A. Ali in electrical engineering, Sang-Ik Terry Cho in acoustics and Muhammad Faryad in engineering science and mechanics.

The awards provide funding to full-time doctoral students who have passed their comprehensive exams and have received approval of their dissertation topics, or to master of fine arts students in their final year.

A total of 13 graduate students received the award across the University. Each student received a $5,000 award and was recognized at the Graduate School Alumni Society's Spring Social and Recognition Program. Funds for these awards were made possible by a gift from the Penn State Alumni Association.
