2014 Scholarship Recipient


Jaclyn is a 2019 graduate of NC State with a B.S. in Environmental Engineering. She currently lives in Raleigh and work at a woman-owned engineering firm called SEPI Inc. as a site civil designer.

“The scholarship was a blessing to me and my family. It gave me and my parents piece of mind knowing that I didn't have to buy a laptop for school and that I had money going towards school and already had less student loans. I am very grateful to have been selected for this scholarship 6 years ago.” 

Stephanie Eberly
2016 Scholarship Recipient

Stephanie Eberly graduated Valedictorian from North Carolina State University in the Spring of 2020 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a 4.00 GPA.  While studying at NC State she performed research on low-cost air quality measurement devices for developing countries under Dr. Andrew Grieshop and augmented the creation of an exoskeleton to improve hand dexterity of stroke survivors under Dr. Katherine Saul.  She also spent a summer as part of the PARADIM REU at Cornell University assisting in the design and development of an angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy system which is used to probe the structure of electrons within a material.  Besides research endeavours, Stephanie had internships at Domtar Paper Company and Solar Turbines.  She was also a member of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and Engineers Without Borders (EWB).

After graduating from NC State, Stephanie is now a PhD student and Berkeley Fellow at the University of California at Berkeley.  She plans on earning her doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Biomechanics.  Currently, she is part of Sohn Lab which conducts research in the areas of cancer and stem cell biology.  Under the guidance of her PI, Dr. Lydia Sohn, Stephanie hopes to study neural stem cells in an effort to enhance the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
