Graduate Students win Princeton Fellowships

Wednesday, Apr 28, 2004

Two chemical engineering PhD students were selected to be recipients of Princeton University's honorific fellowships for the 2004-05 academic year. Honorific fellowships recognize outstanding performance and professional promise and represent high commendation from the Princeton University Graduate School.

M. Scott Shell was awarded a Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship, making it the second year in a row that this top honor is given to a chemical engineering student. Established in 1905 by Clara Cooley Jacobus, this fellowship is an honorific award reserved for four students who, in the judgment of the University faculty, demonstrate the highest scholarly excellence during that year.

Leonard Pease received a Wallace Memorial Fellowship in Engineering. Founded in 1930 by the bequest of Bonnie Wallace LeClear, this fellowship recognizes distinguished work in engineering.
