Students in Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have great opportunities for both scholarships and fellowships. There are IBM Fellows, Clare Boothe Luce Fellows, EPA Fellows, SPE Awards and Fellows, only to name a few. One award, the Santos Go Memorial Scholarship is an endowment fund established through concerted efforts of the PSE department, the Owens-Illinois Company, the Go family, and former PSE classmates. The fund initiated the "Santos Go Memorial Merit Scholarship", to be awarded each year to the most outstanding second year PSE student as judged by scholarly accomplishments accrued during the previous academic year. Factors weighed in selecting the scholarship's recipient include cumulative exam performance, grades, and research initiative.
