2024 Investiture Information

The Mazilu Engineering Research Fellowship

An award of up to $10,000 will support a student for a full academic year (3 to 4 terms) of research, including one off-term. The amount of the fellowship will be fixed at the time of the award. The off-term budget may include a stipend of up to $4,500 for the student, with the remainder of funds applied to supplies and other project costs as approved by the faculty mentor. The Fellowship cannot be used for tuition.

Project Reporting

Students will submit a final report to the Thayer faculty mentor and to the Mazilu family at the conclusion of the research experience. This report will be written in the established Thayer thesis format; there is no page limit for this report. A final culminating presentation is also required, whereby the student will present his/her research to the selection committee, highlighting the goals of the research, significant results, and implications for future research. The Mazilu family will make every possible effort to attend this presentation.
