YSU students receive engineering scholarships, including NASA fellowship
YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown State University students have received scholarships from the Ohio Space Grant Consortium, including Alexis Cresanto (junior, Chemical Engineering: “Biochemical Research”) of Salem and Timothy Chamberlain (senior, Mechanical Engineering: “Design of Ranque-Hilsch Vortex Tube for Temperature-Sensitive Paint Testing”) of Wellsville.
YSU is a university affiliate of the Ohio Space Grant Consortium, which also administered $7,000 in scholarships to YSU undergraduate students in STEM disciplines in Spring 2020. Each student was required to complete a research project during the semester under the advisement of a YSU faculty member – Disotell; Pedro Cortes, Chemical engineering; and Holly Martin, Chemical Engineering. The Ohio Space Grant Consortium is part of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, established by Congress in 1989 and administered by the Office of STEM Engagement at NASA Headquarters. Space Grant is a national network of colleges and universities working to expand opportunities for Americans to understand and participate in NASA’s aeronautics and space projects by supporting and enhancing STEM through scholarships, fellowships, higher education, research infrastructure, pre-college, and informal education public outreach efforts.
