KNOXVILLE—Nuclear engineering students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville were recently awarded a number of scholarships, with Oak Ridge’s Mikah Rust among them.
Rust, who was named the Junior/Senior Undergraduate Scholarship winner, joins three other students from the College of Engineering’s Department of Nuclear Engineering who were recognized:
- Alyxandria Wszolek, a sophomore from Madison, Mississippi, won the Operations and Power Division Scholarship;
- Travis Labossiere-Hickman, a junior from Brush Creek, Tennessee, won the Raymond DiSalvo Memorial Scholarship; and
- Colton Oldham, from Hurricane, West Virginia, won the Sophomore Undergraduate Scholarship.
Wszolek’s scholarship is worth $2,500, while the other three are worth $2,000 each.
The awards come less than two weeks after Wszolek, Labossiere-Hickman, and Rust were three of 12 students in the department to be awarded scholarships or fellowships through a U.S. Department of Energy program.
