Professor Rama Chellappa (ECE/UMIACS/CS) was selected as one of two faculty recipients of the Outstanding Gemstone Mentor Award. Prof. Chellappa was nominated for the award by the Gemstone students he advised.

The Gemstone Program at the University of Maryland is a unique multidisciplinary four-year research program for selected undergraduate honors students of all majors. Under guidance of faculty mentors and Gemstone staff, teams of students design, direct and conduct significant research, exploring the interdependence of science and technology with society. Gemstone students are members of a living-learning community comprised of fellow students, faculty and staff who work together to enrich the undergraduate experience.
