The Engineers for the World (E4TW) Fellowships
Established in 2007, the Fellowship celebrates the passion, enthusiasm, commitment, achievement, service and leadership of Engineering Science students completing second year. The Fellowship provides financial support for those students who wish to develop their skills by giving back to communities, organizations and working with engineers who are at the forefront of science and society.
Recipients of this highly competitive Fellowship have dedicated their time to world-changing organizations. For example, our Fellows helped develop a framework to evaluate Internet censorship for Reporters Without Boarders and analyzed performance of wind farms in Malawi. In yet another example, our Fellows in partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund traveled to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to create a design competition to help restore the Lower Mississippi River.
E4TW Fellows hold true the belief that ones contributions make a significant difference. These students make a conscious and deliberate choice to pursue research and career paths for the betterment of society.
