Abstract : A pilot program for Graduate Student Summer Support via the AFOSR Summer Faculty Research Program (SFRP) was initiated by contract modification on 26 March 1982. The program was developed as an adjunct effort to the SFRP. Its purpose is to provide funds for selected graduate students to work at an appropriate Air Force Laboratory or Center with a supervising professor who holds a concurrent SFRP appointment. SCEEE appointed 17 graduate students representing fifteen (15) schools and ten (10) disciplines in science and engineering in the 1982 Program. In 1983 the Program was expanded to 53 students representing 36 schools and 18 disciplines. The 53 participants were selected from 117 applicants. To be eligible, all candidates had to be currently registered in a graduate program. The graduate students were selected from the fields of engineering, computer science, mathematics, or the physical sciences and were supervised by a faculty member who held an appointment as a SCEEE Fellow for the summer of 1983 under the Summer Faculty Research Program. The students were U.S. citizens, working toward an appropriate graduate degree, and currently enrolled in the graduate school at their respective institutions. (Author)
