Top Graduate Students Gather O'Hara Fellowship Honors

Top Graduate Students Gather O'Hara Fellowship Honors

Four College of Sciences graduate students are the recipients of the 2020 Larry O'Hara Graduate Student Fellowship, presented to top doctoral students in their third or fourth years of study.

Research opportunities that opened up to Georgia Tech students during their undergraduate years expand significantly when students continue their work as graduate or doctoral students.

Georgia Tech College of Sciences encourages that work with the annual presentation of Larry S. O’Hara Graduate Scholarships, given to outstanding doctoral students who are scheduled to graduate in the calendar year following their nominations.

This year four students were chosen as the winners of the O’Hara Graduate Scholarships. Please join us in congratulating our recipients:
