[ Email | Share ] CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Four University of Illinois doctoral students – three of them from the Urbana campus – will each receive a $20,000 FMC Technologies Inc. Fellowship for the 2012-13 academic year. Three master's students will each receive $12,000.
The fellowship program, established in 1971, annually honors outstanding graduate students in business administration, economics, engineering, finance or related fields.
The doctoral winners from the Urbana campus are Mayank Behl, chemical engineering; Arun Gain, civil and environmental engineering; and Arnab Mukherjee, chemical and biomolecular engineering.
The master’s winners from Urbana are Harishankar Manikantan, theoretical and applied mechanics, and Owen Carr, MBA.
The winners were chosen by a committee representing FMC, the U. of I. and the U. of I. Foundation.
The FMC Technologies Inc. Scholarship Fund, formerly called the FMC Educational Fund, was established as the Link-Belt Educational Fund in 1963 with a donation from U. of I. alumnus Bert A. Gayman.
A few years later, Link-Belt merged into the FMC Corp., which later became FMC Technologies Inc.
Intending to provide education and research opportunities, the fund now provides more than $360,000 annually for undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships at the University of Illinois.
