Florida Tech Receives Funding for Ocean Engineering Fellowships

– The Link Foundation of Binghamton, N.Y., has awarded $75,000 for three ocean engineering (OE) and instrumentation fellowships and $12,000 for fellowship
administration to Florida Tech’s Department of Marine and Environmental Systems (DMES). The three
2006-2007 fellowship recipients, to receive $25,000 each, are:

Marion D. Bandet-Chavanne, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Dept. of Ocean and Resources Engineering; Brooke Love, University of Washington, Dept. of
Oceanography; and Stephen Martin, Johns Hopkins University, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering.

This is the eighth consecutive year that the foundation has provided funding to the university for OE program fellows. Dr. George A. Maul, professor of
oceanography and DMES head, administers the Link Fellowship program. Since the foundation began funding the program in 1999, 14 fellowships have been

The Link Foundation was established in 1953 by Edwin and Marion Clayton Link. The foundation makes grants to qualified nonprofit organizations interested
in the mastery of the air and sea, and the development of energy resources and their conservation, and in simulation and training. The Link Foundation
Ocean Engineering and Instrumentation Fellowship program is designed to support graduate education in doctoral-granting universities in the United States
and Canada.

The Department of Marine and Environmental Systems integrates the expertise and skills of
scientists, engineers and resource managers. DMES offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in oceanography, environmental science, ocean engineering and
