Hendley Wins SMART Scholarship

Department of Materials Science and Engineering undergraduate Coit Hendley IV has been awarded a Science, Mathematics And Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship by the Department of Defense (DOD).

The highly selective SMART program was established to support the education of the nation's future scientists and engineers, and to increase the number of civilian scientists and engineers employed by the DOD. Undergraduate and graduate students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) majors who are accepted into the program receive a full scholarship, a cash award of $25,000–$41,000, health insurance and textbook allowances, and mentoring. While earning their degrees, SMART Scholars are assigned to a DOD laboratory, in which they serve paid summer internships. After graduation, they continue to work for the DOD as civilian employees engaged in theoretical or applied research for a period of at least one year.
