ECE graduate students Kevin Galloway and Chad Ropp have been awarded L-3 Graduate Research Fellowships for the 2010-2011 academic year.

Kevin Galloway is advised by Professor P. S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR), while Chad Ropp, a 2007 B.S. graduate in electrical engineering at Maryland, is advised by Assistant Professor Edo Waks (ECE/IREAP). Kevin and Chad are two of five Ph.D. students in the A. James Clark School of Engineering to receive the L-3 Graduate Fellowships this year. The other fellowship recipients were Gregory Gremillion, Keith Gregorczyk, and Jessica Sheehan.

In July 2010, L-3 Communications gave a gift of $1 million over three years to the Clark School to benefit students through scholarships, fellowships and student program support. L-3 Graduate Research Fellowships annually support five Clark School Ph.D. candidates in the last three years of a Ph.D. program who conduct research in cybersecurity, robotics, energy, systems engineering, or reliability engineering.
