BMES members included in 2019 Tau Beta Pi fellowship recipients

Seven BMES members are part of the new Fellowship Board of Tau Beta Pi class, the organization announced.
The engineering honor society selected 37 engineering students from 339 applicants for graduate fellowships.  

Thirty-five of this year's recipients will receive cash stipends of $10,000 for their advanced study. More than $7,300,000 in stipends will have been given by the Society when this 86th group of fellows completes its graduate work.

All Tau Beta Pi Fellowships are awarded on the competitive criteria of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession. All fellows are members of Tau Beta Pi and may do their graduate work at any institution they choose. These awards bring the total to 1,676 fellowships granted since the program was inaugurated in 1929.

This year's recipients will study various fields of engineering, including six each in biomedical and chemical, five mechanical, four bio, and three in materials science & engineering. The others have chosen to study aeronautics & astronautics, biological engineering, chemical & biomolecular engineering, civil engineering, computer science, construction engineering & management, electrical engineering, geotechnical engineering, medicine, nuclear engineering, operations research, robotics, & space systems engineering.
