Several CEMS graduate students were awarded Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships (DDF) for academic year 2023-2024 in a University-wide competition sponsored by the University of Minnesota Graduate School. CEMS recipients include: Atharva Chikhalikar (ChE, Poerschke group), Rashmi Choudhary (MSE, Jalan group), Ryan Collanton (ChE, Dorfman group), Matthew Hausladen (MSE, Ellison and Francis groups), Benjamin Robertson (ChE, Calabrese group), Mayank Tanwar (ChE, Neurock group) and Joseph Vallin (ChE, Azarin group). The Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship (DDF) gives the University's most accomplished Ph.D. candidates an opportunity to devote full-time effort to an outstanding research project by providing time to finalize and write a dissertation during the fellowship year.
