Congratulations to Elise Loppinet for winning the 2021-2022 Department of Chemical Engineering Mason Fellowship!
This prestigious award has been made possible by the Mason Lectureship fund. It is a 3-quarter fellowship, funding the student’s quarterly stipend at the level of a SGF as well as tuition, awarded to a graduate student who provided leadership to the student community and who went above and beyond to serve the department outside of their normal studies and research. We want to recognize outstanding dedication and efforts for contributing to the department and serving the graduate student community as a whole. The Mason Fellowship will be presented at the Mason Lecture banquet by the donor. The Mason Fellowship will be awarded to one student.
