The United States Department of Energy's Office of Science Graduate Fellowship Program has selected Beth Essinger-Hileman to receive a graduate fellowship. Essinger-Hileman, a third-year graduate student in Ray Schaak's group, is working to improve nanomaterial purity and to assemble complex nanoscale heterostructures with interesting and useful properties. Her previous accomplishments at Penn State have earned her a Roberts Fellowship and an Incoming Graduate Student Award. Following graduation she would like to pursue a career in academia.

The Department of Energy selected 150 students throughout the U.S. to receive graduate fellowship awards in an effort to strengthen the nation’s scientific work force. The graduate fellows were deemed part of the nation’s “next generation of scientific and technical leaders” by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu.
