Clemson celebrates 2017-2018 Bosch Fellowship in Automotive Engineering recipient
September 26, 2017
On September 22, Clemson announced the 2017-2018 recipient of the Bosch Endowed Fellowship in Automotive Engineering at an event at CU-ICAR. Bosch established this fellowship endowment in 2014 with a gift of $560,000.
Caroline Louis, who received her undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Clemson in May 2017, was announced as this year’s fellowship recipient. She was joined by the past three Bosch Fellows, Valerie Clements (2016), Lauren Mims (2015), and Vismita Sonagra (2014), along with Clemson leadership and several executives from Bosch, including Mike Mansuetti, President of Robert Bosch LLC and Kathleen Owsley, Executive Director of the Bosch Community Fund, and leadership from Bosch’s three South Carolina locations.
Guests at the fellowship event enjoyed hearing more about the accomplishments of all four Bosch Fellows to date, as well as Bosch’s passion for diversifying the STEM workforce, and particularly the automotive industry, which helped inspire the creation of this fellowship for underrepresented populations in automotive engineering.
Congratulations to Caroline and all of the Bosch Fellows, and thank you to Bosch for their investment in Clemson students and programs!
