LMRT graduate student Jaideep Dudani (in the picture above: back row, third from the right) is among the sixteen MIT graduate students that have been selected as part of the 2018 cohort of Siebel Scholars. The students hail from the world’s top graduate programs in bioengineering, business, computer science, and energy science. Honored for their academic achievements, leadership, and commitments to addressing crucial global challenges, the select MIT students are among 95 students from 28 institutions participating in the Siebel Scholars Program.
Siebel Scholars each receive an award of $35,000 to cover their final year of study. In addition, they will join a community of more than 1,100 past Siebel Scholars, including more than 230 from MIT, who serve as advisors to the Thomas and Stacy Siebel Foundation and collaborate “to find solutions to society’s most pressing problems,” according to the foundation.
Established by the Siebel Foundation in 2000, the Siebel Scholars program provides grants to outstanding students at top graduate schools in the United States, China, France, Italy, and Japan. You can read more about the award here.
