Monday, October 03, 2016

WNCG student Ahmed Kord was recently awarded a Graduate Dean’s Prestigious Fellowship Supplement for the 2016-2017 academic year. The award was presented in recognition of Kord’s receipt of an external Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship earlier this year.

“This award bespeaks [Kord’s] excellent performance, his initiative to go after external support for his research, and his program’s enthusiastic support of him,” Marvin Hackert, Interim Dean of Graduate Studies at UT Austin, stated in Kord’s acceptance letter.

In addition to a $1,000 fellowship, the UT Austin Graduate School will also provide Kord a tuition waiver to pay in-state tuition for the 2016-2017 academic year.

At WNCG, Kord is advised by Prof. Andrea Alù.
