CEAT Niblack Scholarships

STILLWATER, Okla. –  Oklahoma State University has named three College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology students as 2018-19 Niblack Research Scholars, each receiving $8,000 scholarships and the opportunity to conduct research guided by faculty sponsors and graduate student mentors. Fourteen students were selected from across campus.

CEAT students selected were:

Carley Eastep, Chemical Engineering, Jones, OK

Shelby Mohr, Chemical Engineering, Haslet, TX

Fatama Sornaly, Chemical Engineering, Owasso, OK

The Niblack Research Scholars program, administered through the OSU Office of the Vice President for Research, is a unique chance for undergraduates to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to actual research projects.

The annual program is funded by OSU alumnus Dr. John Niblack and his wife, Heidi Niblack. As an undergraduate at OSU, Niblack said his research experience impacted the direction of his life. Niblack graduated from OSU in 1960 and, after graduate studies, conducted research and managed the development of many well-known pharmaceuticals for Pfizer Inc., the $34 billion global company. He was eventually named Pfizer vice chairman and, following retirement, founded the Niblack Research Scholarship to offer OSU undergraduates the same research opportunity he had.
