Woodruff School Graduate Students Awarded Hearst Fellowship
Three Woodruff School graduate students, Terese Martinez, George Peters, and Chelsea Siberglied, were awarded the 2017-2018 William Randolph Hearst Fellowship. Fellowship recipients bring exemplary levels of scholarship and innovation to the academic departments that host their study and research and are selected based on their academic record, standardized test scores, education goals, and letters of recommendation.
The William Randolph Hearst Fellowship Fund in the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech was established by an endowment from the William Randolph Foundation. The William Randolph Hearst Fellowship seeks to attract students of color or women who intend to pursue their master's degree in engineering, and a limited number of William Randolph Hearst Fellowships are awarded each academic year.
The fellowship provides an annual stipend of $6,000 for nine months of full-time enrollment and is intended as a supplemental award that may be held in addition to other fellowships.
The Hearst Foundations are national philanthropic resources for organizations working in the fields of culture, education, health and social services. The Hearst Foundations identify and fund outstanding nonprofits to ensure that people of all backgrounds in the United States have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and inspiring lives. Since inception, the Foundations have made over 20,000 grants totaling more than $1 billion.
