Graduating Senior Matthew Clarke Awarded Tau Beta Pi and Stanford University Graduate Fellowships!

Howard University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering would like to congratulate its graduating senior (c/o 2016), Matthew Clarke on being awarded the Tau Beta Pi (TBP) Fellowship for the 2016 – 2017 academic year and Stanford University’s Graduate Engineering Fellowship!

Matthew has been awarded $10,000 through the TBP Fellowship. The Tau Beta Pi fellowship Program is one that “recognizes and supports outstanding members who plan to pursue graduate education that advances the engineering profession”. In 2015, 31 TBP Fellowships were awarded and over 300 applications were received. Similar to last year, Matthew was one of few selected for the prestigious 2016 TBP Fellowship. Matthew was selected based on his scholarship, strong faculty recommendations, extracurricular contributions and “unusual promise of substantial achievement through a definite plan or purpose”.

Stanford University’s Graduate Engineering Fellowship is valued at over $100,000! Matthew has enrolled in the master program at Stanford and will be starting fall 2016, studying Aerospace Engineering in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. This fellowship will cover Matthew for his first 5 quarters of study, with provisional financial support by the department for the final 2 two quarters.

Matthew has shared with the department that he believes he will undoubtedly be entering one of the most exciting and challenging phases of his career and is forever grateful for his family, friends and faculty who have all mentored and ushered him on his journey to making his dreams his reality.

Congratulations Matthew Clarke!
