Doctoral researcher Mohsen Seifi wins ASTM International Graduate Scholarship

Mohsen Seifi, a doctoral researcher in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, has been awarded a 2015 American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International Graduate Scholarship for the second year in a row. He will be recognized at the ASTM Fall Meeting in Tampa where he officially will accept the award.

Established in 2009 to coincide with ASTM’s Year of the Professor initiative, the ASTM International Graduate Scholarship rewards graduate students who have demonstrated high levels of interest in or involvement with ASTM International standards. The objective of the ASTM scholarship program is to enhance a student’s knowledge, understanding and application of ASTM International and its standards. Recipients of the scholarship receive an award in the amount of $10,000.

Seifi is actively involved with additive manufacturing and is co-leading a task group as part of ASTM’s committee on additive manufacturing technologies to develop a guideline for mechanical testing.
