Graduate Student News:
Student Awarded Special Fellowship

Mathematics graduate student Brian Allen is spending 10 weeks in the nation's capital this summer working at the Washington, D.C. bureau of TIME magazine as a Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellow. The fellowship, awarded to Allen by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, provides scientists and engineers an opportunity to: (1) observe and participate in the process by which events and ideas become news, (2) improve their communication skills by learning to describe complex technical subjects in a manner comprehensible to non-specialists, and (3) increase their understanding of editorial decision making and the way in which information is effectively disseminated. The fellowship pays a stipend and travel expenses to and from Washington.

Allen has completed his first year of graduate work. He graduated magna cum laude from St. Louis University in 1998. During summer 1996, he participated in the REU program at Washington University, and the following summer he was in the REU program at University of Tennessee.
