The DoD awards the NSDEG Fellowship annually to individuals who have demonstrated ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering. The program is highly competitive and confers high honors upon its recipients.

In addition to receiving the NSDEG Fellowship, Li has been accepted to Stanford University’s M.S./Ph.D. program in Electrical Engineering. Li currently has a 3.974 GPA, and has been a participant in the Maryland Engineering Research Internship Teams (MERIT) program under Assistant Professor Pamela Abshire.
