Smith and Breaux Win IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Awards

Congratulations to CSC graduate students Sarah Smith and Travis Breaux, each of whom were recently awarded the prestigious 2006 IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Award.  

The IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Program honors exceptional Ph.D. students in an array of focus areas of interest to IBM and fundamental to innovation. These are highly competitive awards, with over 500 students world-wide being nominated this year.  

Fellows are awarded tuition, fees, and a stipend of $17,500 ( US ) for one academic year.  All IBM Ph.D. Fellows are matched with an IBM Mentor according to their technical interests, and they are encouraged to intern at an IBM research or development laboratory under their Mentor 's guidance.  An IBM ThinkPad is awarded during the internship.  Internship assignments are designed to strengthen and broaden the awardee's technical experience and contacts.  

Special thanks go to their sponsors, Drs. Laurie Williams and Annie Antón , respectively, for their assistance. And thanks to IBM for their continued support of our department and our students.
