Two Engineering students have received fellowships and scholarships from the Iowa Space Grant Consortium.

Bryne Berry, a recent Bachelor's degree graduate in mechanical engineering and now Master's Degreecandidate in mechanical engineering advised by Olesya Zhupanska, associate professor of mechanical and industrial engineering, has received a National Aeronautics and Space Administration Fellowship worth $7,000 from the Iowa Space Grant Consortium.

Sanam Zarei, an undergraduate biomedical engineering student, earned a $7,000 scholarship from the consortium.

The Iowa Space Grant Consortium is part of the NASA National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, authorized by Congress in 1987. The ISGC was formed in 1990 by the three Regents' universities (Iowa State University, the University of Iowa, and the University of Northern Iowa) and now includes Drake University, as well as affiliates from government, industry and nonprofit organizations. The mission of the ISGC is to coordinate and improve Iowa's future in aerospace science and technology and to stimulate aerospace research, education and outreach activities throughout the state.
