NASA Announces 2006 Fellowship Awards
NASA has named its 2006 awardees for the NASA Administrator's Fellowship Program, an effort to ensure the strength of our nation's scientific and technical workforce.

The program was started nine years ago to help minority institutions respond to NASA's overall education, research and development mission. It's designed to enhance the professional development of NASA employees and faculty of minority-serving institutions.

The fellowship offers access to NASA's internal and informal information networks. It also expands knowledge of NASA's technical and scientific needs, and provides opportunities for institutions to share information about their specific capabilities and technologies.

2006 fellowship recipients:

Manmohan D. Aggarwal, Ph.D., Alabama A&M University, Normal, Ala.
Beth A. Brown, Ph.D., NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
Dawn M. Elliott, Ph.D., NASA Kennedy Space Center, Fla.
Louis J. Everett, Ph.D., University of Texas, El Paso
Dr. Julius L. Harp, North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, N.C.
Carolyn E. Knowles, NASA Headquarters, Washington
John O. Lassiter, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala.
Goang S. Liaw, Ph.D., Alabama A&M University
John V. Shebalin, Ph.D., NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston
Malcolm K. Stanford, Ph.D., NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland
Michael W. Watson, Ph.D., Fisk University, Nashville, Tenn.

Seventy-one fellows have been selected since the program's inception. Participants have been instrumental in securing individual and institutional research awards and mentoring students to pursue NASA related research and work at agency centers.

The program is managed and administered by the United Negro College Fund Special Programs Corporation in Fairfax, Va., for the NASA's Office of Education.
