The Aaron and Zelda Greenberg Scholars Program will incorporate an estimated 10-15 students, annually, who will work with faculty advisors to develop a program of independent research study that will weave through both B.S. and M.S. degree programs. Faculty advisors will seek to find meaningful projects and will incorporate external internships or other scholarly experiences along this path to enhance not only the Scholars’ academic development, but also their professional skillset.
The Greenberg Scholars will be expected to obtain both the B.S. and M.S. degrees from the CArE Engineering Department in 5 years, and will actively seek to attain national level recognition while doing so (e.g. by securing fellowships or awards from NSF, DOE, etc.). The Greenberg Scholars Program will challenge our most talented students to reach their full potential while concurrently attracting prospective students to the challenges and opportunities the program provides.
The academic requirements, expectations and eligibility follow the established Master Student Fellowship Program.
Students accepted into the Greenberg Scholars Program will be given preference for support from the Greenberg scholarship fund to help meet the scholars’ unmet financial needs.
