Student notes

Undergraduate student Megan Gullicksrud received a scholarship from the Kimberly-Clark Diversity Fund last fall. The scholarship is one of many resulting from a partnership between Kimberly-Clark and UW-Madison to create a more diverse and better-educated workforce.

Three graduate students recently won prestigious national graduate fellowships for periods ranging from three to five years: Shawn Brueggemeier, a student in Sean Palecek's group, has been selected to receive a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program through the American Society for Engineering Education. Catherine Stoia, in Juan de Pablo's group, won a Whitaker Foundation Graduate Fellowship in Biomedical Engineering. Christopher Stoltz, a student of Mike Graham and Juan de Pablo won an NSF Fellowship.

Prima Sehanputri, a graduate student with Charlie Hill, received the 2001 Ralph H. Potts Memorial Fellowship Award of the American Oil Chemists' Society. Prima focuses on using immobilized lipases for selective hydrolysis of corn oil and for acidolysis of milk fat with conjugated linoleic acid.

Two undergraduates were selected to receive campus research awards: Lea Goentoro will receive a Hilldale Undergraduate/Faculty Research Fellowship for her proposal with Juan de Pablo titled: "Systematic Investigation of Annealing on the Lyophilization of Biological Systems." Jane Rempel will receive a Holstrom Environmental Scholarship to work with Manos Mavrikakis on "Atomic-scale Design of Environmental Catalysts."

Undergraduate student Shaun Lippow has received a graduate fellowship from Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society. The awards are based on high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession.
