Engineering doctoral researcher accepts international graduate scholarship

Mohsen Seifi, doctoral researcher in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been awarded one of three 2014 American Society for Testing and Materials International Graduate Scholarships. He was recently recognized at the ASTM Fall Meeting in New Orleans, where he officially accepted the award from James Thomas, president of ASTM International.
 
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. The organization awards up to four $10,000 scholarships each year.
