Sarah Wielgosz, mechanical engineering junior, has been awarded a Naugle Fellowship in Mechanical Engineering for 2020. The $7,500 fellowship will be used to offset tuition fee. Wielgosz was selected based on a glowing recommendation provided by Prof. Matt Barry.

Wielgosz served as a teaching assistant for two of Dr. Barry’s classes this summer where, according to Barry, she went above and beyond to provide her peers with the best learning experience possible by not only grading papers, but by creating weekly TopHat worksheets and holding extensive office hours for the students. This is particularly noteworthy since all teaching was delivered online because of covid-19 restrictions. Through Wielgosz’s dedication, the students were provided an outstanding learning environment.

The University’s goal is to assist students in obtaining the highest quality education possible.  Part of this assistance includes financial support in the form of fellowships such as this one.
