Three Undergrad Aero Students Awarded L-3 Scholarships

Three Aero students have been selected to receive scholarships from L-3 Communications through the A. James Clark School of Engineering.


Li Peng Lian and Elena Shrestha each received an L-3 Communications Corporation Scholarship for $4150, and Harrison Chau received an L-3 Communications Corporate Partner Scholarship for $1000. Li, Elena and Harrison attended L-3 Day, the first of several L-3 Communications events each semester, on March 3rd, 2011.


L-3 has pledged a $1 million dollar gift to the Clark School over three years, benefiting students in many ways. The gift established L-3 Graduate Research Fellowships and other scholarships. Approximately $300,000 of this funding was given to the Clark school for the first year. It will support diversity programs, student organizations, competitions, and the Clark School Corporate Partners Program.


The funds will also support the Women in Engineering Program and the Center for Minorities in Science and Engineering, along with student teams like TerpsRacing and Robotics@Maryland.
