Clemson engineering students recognized by Tau Beta Pi

Several students in Clemson's SC Alpha chapter of Tau Beta Pi have won national awards presented this year by the honor society. 

Danielle Martin, a May 2013 graduate from Clemson's undergraduate Bioengineering program,  has won a Tau Beta Pi graduate fellowship for 2013-2014.

There were 40 fellowships awarded nationwide.  This is the fourth year in a row and 5th of the last 6 years that a member of SC Alpha has been awarded a fellowship. 

The following students were awarded undergraduate scholarships for 2013-2014:

  • R. Jordan Hall  (Bioengineering)
  • Sara Albritton (Civil Engineering)
  • Melanie Payne  (Civil Engineering)
  • Turner Cotterman (Electrical Engineering)

There were 210 scholarships awarded nationwide. This is the sixth year in a row that a member of SC Alpha has been awarded a scholarship, and the last four years in a row we have had multiple winners.

The Tau Beta Pi Association was founded at Lehigh University in 1885 by Edward Higginson Williams, Jr., to mark in a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.
