Grad student Timothy Creech receives Space Technology Research Fellowship

Timothy Creech, a graduate student advised by Rajeev Barua (ECE/ISR), is one of six A. James Clark School of Engineering students in NASA's inaugural class of Space Technology Research Fellowships. Only MIT and Georgia Tech had more fellows with seven per school.

The program's goal is to provide the nation with a pipeline of highly skilled engineers and technologists to improve U.S. competitiveness. Fellows benefit from a $36,000 stipend for doctoral students and $30,000 for master’s students in addition to $30,000 to offset the costs of tuition and other fees. The NASA Space Technology Research Fellowships also will provide fellows with on-site NASA center/research and development lab experience. The fellowship is offered initially for one year. Contingent upon progress, the fellowship may be renewed for up to one additional year for master’s students and up to three additional years for doctoral students.
