ME Undergrad Selin Mariadhas Awarded ASME Foundation Scholarship

Mechanical Engineering undergraduate senior Selin S. Mariadhas has been awarded a 2004 American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Foundation Scholarship. Selin is the only recipient of the award from the University of Maryland College Park campus in 2004.

The scholarship fund was established in 1999 through the generous endowment of an anonymous donor. Only 15 such awards are granted by ASME each year, in the amount of $1,500 each.

Applicants must be ASME student members in good standing at the time of application, enrolled in an ABET accredited or substantially equivalent mechanical engineering, mechanical engineering technology or related baccalaureate program. The award recipients are selected on the basis of scholastic ability and potential contribution to the mechanical engineering profession.

Ms. Mariadhas has been researching under Professor Elisabeth Smela since April 2002, and is currently a summer intern in the Research and Development department of Proctor & Gamble. Selin was the recipient of the 2004 Clark School of Engineering Kim A. Borsavage and Pamela J. Stone Student Award for Outstanding Service and dedication to the college, and is actively involved in many student activities within the A.J. Clark School of Engineering, including Women in Engineering, Society of Women Engineers and the QUEST program. She recently received the Daily Record's Circle of Excellence scholarship in the amount of $3,000.
