Mark Kevin King, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, received a renewal of the Graduate Fellowship he was awarded in 2017.

This year, he is joined by undergraduate scholars Retta M. El-Sayed (biomedical engineering) and Clinton Andrew Campbell (electrical engineering and physics).

The three engineering students are among six UAB students overall who received NASA awards. The graduate fellowships include stipends of $37,000 to $39,000 per year, while the undergraduate awards include scholarships of $1,000-$2,000 per year.

Founded in 1989, the consortium is a voluntary association of all seven research universities in Alabama along with other community colleges, educational outreach, industry and government.
