Graduate Prize Fellow Stephanie Fan awarded a Josephine de Karman Fellowship. The Josephine de Karman Fellowship Trust was established in 1954 by the late Dr. Theodore von Karman, world-renowned aeronautics expert and teacher and first director of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, in memory of his sister, Josephine, who died in 1951. The purpose of this fellowship program is to recognize and assist students whose scholastic achievements reflect Professor von Karman’s high standards.The competition for DeKarman fellowships is extreme. For the 2019-2020 cycle, the committee reviewed over 400 applications and awarded seven (7) fellowships, including students on humanities, social science, science and engineering. Although the competition is open to graduate students from any US university, the vast majority of awards go to students at top-tier schools.
