The Zhou Family Fellowship was established in 2019 through a generous gift by alumni, Quan Zhou and Xiaohua Zhang. Zhou received his Ph.D. in Fiber Optics from Rutgers University in 1989, working under Profs. Eric Garfunkel and George Segal. Zhang also received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1989, working under Prof. Joseph Potenza.
The intent of the Zhou Family Fellowship is to support top tier students actively participating in research. It is, therefore, limited to third/fourth year Ph.D. students with a minimum GPA of 3.5, who have completed coursework and successfully joined a lab.
- Full-time or part-time graduate students nominated by PI
- Up to two fellowships awarded each year
- Possibility for renewal, provided that the student maintains eligibility
