Chinedu Ezebuiroh, a biomedical engineering major who excelled as a researcher at NJIT, has won a fellowship to attend Stanford University, where he’ll pursue a master’s in mechanical engineering.
Chinedu, a 2010 graduate, is one of three members of his senior class to win scholarships to Stanford: Salman Naqvi, an electrical engineering major, and Katrina Hornstein, a mechanical engineer, will also start graduate work in the fall at Stanford.
After graduating from NJIT in 2007, Angelie Mascarinas (2007) won a full scholarship to attend UMDNJ’s New Jersey Medical School.
She feels privileged to be in med school. And she’s also grateful to NJIT for giving her a solid education, without which she would not have made it to med school.
