Grad Students Get Fellowships

Carmel Valley Leader

October 16th 2009

The Siebel Foundation has recognized the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering's pioneering efforts with $2 million to fund fellowships for some of its top bioengineering graduate students, including five recently named the 2010 UC San Diego Siebel Scholars.

They are Terrell Green, Amy Hsieh, Jennifer Singelyn, Julio Ng and Roy Lefkowitz.

The fellowships will be administered by the UCSD Institute for Engineering in Medicine (IEM), in collaboration with the Jacobs School. The IEM brings together faculty in engineering, medicine and pharmaceutical sciences who are collaborating on novel approaches to medicine.

This is the first year that the Siebel Scholars program - which recognizes the most talented students at the world's leading graduate schools of business and computer science - will include top students from leading universities that are breaking new ground in bioengineering. The Jacobs School of Engineering established one of the first bioengineering departments in the country, and it is currently ranked No. 2 by U.S. News & World Report for graduate students.

Besides UCSD, the Siebel Foundation chose top bioengineering scholars at UC Berkeley, Johns Hopkins University, MIT and Stanford University.
