The Amiya Mukherjee Undergraduate Scholarship Award was created in memory of Distinguished Professor Amiya Mukherjee. In his five-decade career, Mukherjee became an internationally-recognized leader and inspired generations of students and colleagues through his teaching, mentorship and friendship. In addition, he single-handedly founded the Materials Science and Engineering program at UC Davis after he joined the university in 1966.
This annual award will provide support to a well-deserving materials science and engineering undergraduate student.
The goal of this fund is build towards endowment, but if the endowment threshold is not met, it will be utilized as a current use fund.
