The Robinson Center was excited to learn that Carter Vu was awarded a three-year fellowship through the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program. This fellowship covers his full tuition for his graduate program in computational hypersonics at the University of Minnesota plus a $34,000 annual stipend.

Carter entered the Robinson Center at the age of 14 through our Transition School Program. After one year in our rigorous college prep program, Carter matriculated into the University of Washington as a full time student. When asked about Carter, the Director of the Early Entrance Program Kathryn Grubbs said "Carter was one of the most thoughtful, kind, and engaged students I have worked with. His academic intellect was matched by his enormous heart and caring for those around him. We will miss him as part of our local community but are thrilled to hear about his continued success as a graduate fellow."

Congratulations to Carter! If you are interested in learning more about Carter's work, check out this article.
