Lopez and Torres Awarded Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority Fellowships

Evelyn Lopez and Astrid Torres, doctoral students in the Department of Chemical Engineering, were awarded Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority (CSURM) Fellowships to attend the 2014 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Polymer Physics. Lopez is supervised by Dr. Sindee L. Simon, and Torres is supervised by Dr. Greg McKenna, Horn Professor and John R. Bradford Chair in Engineering.

The CSURM Fellowship program was established by the GRC Board of Trustees to honor Director Emeritus Carl Storm's many years of service to GRC and to support his commitment to increasing diversity at the conferences. This program provides an opportunity for URM graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty members, and scientists to receive funding assistance to attend their first GRC.
