NASA Recognizes Six Clark School Fellows

NASA Recognizes Six Clark School Fellows

Six Clark School students are among NASA's inaugural class of Space Technology Research Fellowships. Only MIT and Georgia Tech had more fellows with seven per school.

The fellows are:

  • Michael Bustamante (fire protection engineering)
  • Timothy Creech (electrical and computer engineering)
  • Jaemi Lee Herzberger (mechanical engineering)
  • Jeremy Knittel (aerospace engineering)
  • Alex Scammell (mechanical engineering)
  • John Vitucci (aerospace engineering)

The program's goal is to provide the nation with a pipeline of highly skilled engineers and technologists to improve U.S. competitiveness. Fellows benefit from a $36,000 stipend for doctoral students and $30,000 for master’s students in addition to $30,000 to offset the costs of tuition and other fees. The NASA Space Technology Research Fellowships also will provide fellows with on-site NASA center/research and development lab experience. The fellowship is offered initially for one year. Contingent upon progress, the fellowship may be renewed for up to one additional year for master’s students and up to three additional years for doctoral students.
