Engineering and Medical Grad Students Share Foundation's Scholarship Awards

By Ken Keatley

     Three graduate students--one in the School of Medicine and
two in the School of Engineering--have been named recipients of
the 1995-96 Achievement Rewards for College Scientists Foundation
scholarship awards.

     Gloria L. David, of the Department of Pharmacology and
Molecular Sciences; Andrew M. Lennon, of the Department of
Mechanical Engineering; and Louis P. Martin, of the Department of
Materials Science and Engineering, will equally share the $35,500
award from the Metropolitan Washington Chapter of ARCS.

     "An ARCS scholarship will distinguish these outstanding
students and will provide important financial assistance to them
at a critical time in their graduate careers. We also believe
that these students will honor this award, as they have already
exhibited an exceptional level of achievement in their fields,"
said vice provost for research Theodore O. Poehler, in announcing
the awards.

     David came to Hopkins from Pennsylvania State University
with honors for her academic excellence in biochemistry. A
doctoral candidate, she is studying the molecular and cellular
biology of neoplastic cells, including the clinical development
of new antitumor agents. David plans a research and teaching
career in academia.

     Lennon, a second-year graduate student, is also a
second-year winner of an ARCS scholarship. He came to Hopkins
from the University of Delaware with extensive academic honors
and industrial experience, having worked as an engineering intern
with DuPont. Lennon will receive his master's degree in May and
will continue to work toward his doctorate. He plans a research
career in industry or academia.

     Martin, a 1987 Hopkins graduate, returned to the university
in 1991 to pursue his doctorate. He earned a master's degree in
1992, and has completed the required course work for his
doctorate and passed his graduate board oral examinations. The
scholarship will allow Martin to continue his research on the
ultrasonic and dielectric properties of ceramic materials during
microwave sintering. He plans to pursue a career in academia or

     Since 1968, the Metropolitan Washington Chapter of ARCS has
awarded 221 scholarships to benefit academically outstanding
students in need of financial support to complete their higher
education in the fields of science and engineering.
