(March 5, 2018) Lin Ju, a third-year polymer chemistry graduate student in Prof. Robert Moore's group, was selected as a winner of the 2017 Eastman Chemical CompanyFellowship, which was established to assist outstanding students in their research. Lin will receive a $5,000 stipend to help fund her dissertation project, where she is studying the application of new phosphonated polyesters as compatibilizers in polyester/polyamide blends. The award is part of Eastman Chemical Company's Fellowship Program, which aims to identify exemplary students, leverage University research efforts, and build long term relationships between the company and graduate programs. The Advanced Materials Technology Division of Eastman has been a proud sponsor of Virginia Tech for many years, and Lin continues the tradition of excellence in this prestigious fellowship program. Congratulations Lin!
