Materials doctoral candidate Janet Gbur wins ASTM International Scholarship

Janet Gbur, doctoral candidate in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been awarded an American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International Graduate Scholarship in the amount of $10,000 for the 2015-2016 academic year.
As a student member of ASTM since 2011, she has been actively involved in committees E08 Fatigue and Fracture, E28 Mechanical Testing, and E04 Metallography. Most recently, she has contributed to the development of ASTM E2948, Standard Test Method for Conducting Rotating Bending Fatigue Tests of Solid Round Fine Wire and is a participant in the current Interlaboratory Study for the method. She will be recognized during ASTM Committee Week in Tampa, Fla., in November where she will accept the award.

The ASTM International Graduate Scholarship is awarded to up to four 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.
Another doctoral researcher in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve, Mohsen Seifi, also won one of the three graduate scholarships ASTM awarded this year.
