President Donald J. Trump announced the recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Congratulations go to two of our alumni, Christopher Zarzana and Marilyne Stains, who have been honored with this prestigious award.
The PECASE is the highest honor bestowed by the United States Government to outstanding scientists and engineers who are beginning their independent research careers and who show exceptional promise for leadership in science and technology. Established in 1996, the PECASE acknowledges the contributions scientists and engineers have made to the advancement of science, technology, education, and mathematics (STEM) education and to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, and community outreach. The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy coordinates the PECASE with participating departments and agencies.
