Larry Martin and his wife, Joyce O’Neill have endowed a graduate fellowship for students in the College of Science. Mr. Martin is a math (and engineering) alumnus and had a full career as a mathematician doing mathematical modeling for companies such as Lockheed Martin and IBM before starting Troon Vineyard.
The Martin-O’Neill Fellowship is awarded to a graduate student from any department in the College of Science whose research involves computational modeling. This Fellowship covers a stipend of $25,000 disbursed quarterly ($6250/quarter) and a tuition waiver for the academic year. The Fellowship will begin at the start of fall term and continue for one calendar year. The Fellow’s department will be responsible for the tuition payment during the summer term at 3 credits. Each department may nominate one graduate student whose research focus involves computational modeling. Nominees in the 2ndor later years of the PhD program will be given preference during the selection process.
