The Fellowship Board of Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society, announces the selection of 31 engineering students
from 417 applicants for graduate fellowships in 2024-25. All but one of this year’s recipients will receive cash stipends of
$10,000 for advanced study. More than $8,900,000 in stipends will have been given by the Association when this 91st
group of fellows completes its graduate work. These awards bring the total to 1,830 fellowships since the program began
in 1929. All Tau Beta Pi Fellowships are awarded on the competitive criteria of high scholarship, campus leadership and
service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession. All fellows are members of Tau Beta Pi and
may do their graduate work at any institution they choose.

This year’s recipients will study various fields of engineering and science, including biomedical (7), electrical (4),
mechanical (3), chemical (3), bioengineering (2), civil engineering (2), and electrical and computer engineering (2). The
others have chosen to study aerospace engineering, engineering and education research, materials science and
engineering, marine engineering, sustainability science, space systems engineering, robotics, and computer biomedical

Dorian A. Bobbett, NE A ’23 from the University of Michigan was awarded the Zimmerman Fellowship.

According to the Jensen Lab website: Dorian Bobbett is a Ph.D. student studying Engineering Education Research at the University of Michigan. She has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Engineering Leadership from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. She became interested in engineering education research through her work as a teaching assistant, an Engineering Ambassador, and a volunteer at a local elementary school STEM club. In her free time, Dorian enjoys hiking, baking, and crocheting.

Congratulations Dorian!
