Two Clark School Students Named University Innovation Fellows

Two Clark School engineering students Atin Mittra and Meenu Singh have been named University Innovation Fellows by the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter). Sixty-six university students  were selected from 45 higher education institutions across the U.S.

The University Innovation Fellows program offers undergraduate students in engineering and other fields training and support to become leaders who catalyze change on their home campuses. To showcase their enthusiasm for innovation and entrepreneurship, Singh and Mittra put together a YouTube video highlighting initiatives around the University of Maryland campus.

Mittra is an undergraduate in Aerospace Engineering, and recently, he was selected as a finalist for the Tavis Smiley Social Innovation Challenge. Mittra is the founder of MADE Microfinance, a nonprofit focused on providing financial services to people who don't qualify at banks.

Singh is an undergraduate in Civil and Environmental Engineering focusing on the Infrastructure track with a minor in philosophy.

The University Innovation Fellows program is run by the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), funded by the National Science Foundation as a partnership between Stanford University and the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA).
