Student Receives Ocean Engineering Fellowship
MELBOURNE, FLA. — Adam Outlaw of Mobile, Ala., has earned a $2,600 Link Foundation Fellowship for the 2007 spring semester. He is working toward a master’s
degree in ocean engineering at Florida Institute of Technology, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in that field in 2006.
Outlaw also received a Charles H. Bussmann Undergraduate Scholarship toward his 2005-2006 tuition, when still an undergraduate, and is past president of
the student chapter of the Marine Technology Society. He graduated from Alabama School of Mathematics and Science in 2002.
The Link fellowship was established in 1997 after Florida Tech received a $25,000 endowment gift from the Link Foundation.
The Link endowment fund has been matched by gifts from the F.W. Olin Foundation of New York.
DMES offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in oceanography, environmental science, ocean engineering, meteorology, coastal zone management and
environmental resource management.
