Two nuclear engineering graduate students receive Post Foundation Scholarships

Hayes StriplingHayes Stripling and Braden Goddard, both graduate students in the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M University, have been chosen to receive a $5,000 scholarship from the Roy G. Post Foundation.Stripling, a first-year graduate student and a DOE Computational Fellow, received his B.S. in Nuclear Engineering from Texas A&M in May 2009 and is currently working with Dr. Marvin Adams on research related to uncertainty quantification in scientific computing.Braden GoddardGoddard is working in the Nuclear Security Science and Policy Institute (NSSPI). Goddard received his B.S. and M.S. in nuclear engineering from Texas A&M and is currently working with Dr. Bill Charlton on a research project to quantitatively verify the mass of a multiactinide mixture using nondestructive methods.Stripling and Goddard will be recognized March 9 at the Waste Management 2010 (WM2010) Awards Luncheon in Phoenix, Ariz.The Roy G. Post Foundation (named after a former Arizona professor) was created to support students and encourage them to enter the field of Nuclear Waste Management.
