Jackson Rice, an ISE graduate student advised by Dr. Burak Eksioglu, is the recipient of the Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation (SMART) scholarship from the Department of Defense. Jackson received one of approximately 100 awards from a pool of 1,500 applicants. The scholarship includes annual stipend, full tuition, book allowance, health insurance, paid summer internship and post-graduation employment placement with the United States Air Force.
The SMART program is managed by the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) on behalf of the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The American Society of Engineering Education works with NPS to execute the program. We are very pleased that Jackson’s academic success in our program has been recognized in this way.
