IHAWKe Graduate Fellows

IHAWKe Fellows are leaders in the School of Engineering who work with staff at the school level to identify and support the academic and professional needs, provide resources, mentorship opportunities, and specialized programming for graduate students across the school with a focus on diversity. The IHAWKe Fellows promote community and support for minority graduate students in engineering. Additional efforts will be made to sustain leadership funding awards and build a strong and supportive graduate community.Applications for the 2019-2020 IHAWKe Graduate Diversity Fellowship will open in early February. An email will be sent announcing the application is open to all current & incoming engineering graduate students.
