The Fellowship Board has announced the selection of 30 engineering students from 408 applicants for graduate fellowships in 2020-21. All of this year’s recipients will receive cash stipends of $10,000 for advanced study.

More than $7,600,000 in stipends will have been given by the Society when this 87th group of fellows completes its graduate work. All Tau Beta Pi Fellowships are awarded on the competitive criteria of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession.

All fellows are members of Tau Beta Pi and may do their graduate work at any institution they choose. These awards bring the total to 1,676 fellowships granted since the program was inaugurated in 1929.

This year’s recipients will study various fields of engineering, including five biomedical, four each in chemical and mechanical, three materials science and engineering, two each in bioengineering, electrical, and environmental.

A complete listing and biography of each Fellow will appear in the summer issue of The Bent, or you may follow the link here.

The others have chosen to study aeronautics & astronautics engineering, aerospace engineering, civil engineering, computational neuroscience, electrical and computer engineering, electrochemical engineering, electromagnetics, and operations research.

While the pandemic of COVID-19 put many graduation ceremonies on the internet, the reason to celebrate your accomplishment is still reason to put on the cap and gown, wear your Tau Beta Pi regalia, and take tons of pictures! Then grab a drive-thru dinner or a big meal prepared at home with your support team.

With your permission and through your submissions, we want to post them on Social Media like this blog, Instagram, and Facebook. We need your “graduation” pictures! While 2020 graduation was not at all what you expected, please send the pictures of how you celebrated graduation to media@tbp.org.
