Brady Allen and Jacob Collins, undergraduate students in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University, recently won the 2019 CAF Wings Over Houston Scholarship. Brady, an undergraduate researcher in the MAESTRO Lab, was recommended for the scholarship by Dr. Hartl.
Allen interned with CAF the summer of his freshman year, where he provided maintenance on World War II aircrafts and shared their history with visitors during tours. His internship experience is what inspired his decision to pursue a future career in naval aviation. Now a junior, Allen is an undergraduate researcher in the Multifunctional Materials and Aerospace Structures Optimization (M2AESTRO) Lab, where he has studied such diverse topics as morphing radiators for NASA and solid-liquid metal composite actuators for the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
“These are very impressive students and we are proud to be able to help them with their future endeavors,” said Debby Rihn-Harvey, chair of the Wings Over Houston Scholarship Committee.
Allen and Collins will each receive $5,000 for their demonstrated academic potential, leadership and extracurricular involvement.
