Columbia, Nikola Tesla Electrical Engieering Scholar


Recommended Posts

Got into Masters of Engineering at Columbia after getting denied for Ph.D. There is no allocated scholarship or fellowship at Columbia for masters students. I'm wondering how  much will this Nicola Tesla Engineering Scholar title will fetch. 


Are there people around who knows about this?


I do know that there isn't any scholarship tied to the title but, I'm expecting some kind of funds as I was awarded this title. Although it all depends upon how prestigious this title is. :(

I also got into the MS program after denied for PhD.

Also got the Nikola Tesla Scholar..


Does anyone know what comes with this title beside the name? any funding?

$2,500 for second and third semesters with duties like peer tutoring and research. I think it's better than not having anything at all, but I am sure lots of us were awarded due to the fact that we applied for PhD but got into MS program. Usually students may apply it when they are already at Columbia, I do appreciate them awarding incoming excellent ms students.
