Elevating the Research Enterprise
A new research milestone was achieved in 2018 as WPI advanced its strategic goal to elevate the research enterprise. The continuing growth is attributed to a number of factors, including the recently launched Research Solutions Institute and talented young researchers joining new and established labs.
Inaugural Presidential Fellows
The WPI Presidential Fellowship launches the PhD career of highly talented students to WPI, covering a year of tuition, a stipend, and opportunities for professional development to allow underrepresented women and minority doctoral students flexibility in research. The inaugural trio of Presidential Fellows represent different backgrounds and are following diverse academic paths, but all will elevate the research at WPI with the work they plan to do here.
