Matthew Edwards Jacobus Fellowship

Matthew Edwards is one of four winners of this year’s Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship, Princeton University’s top honor for graduate students, along with Chantal Berman, Cole Bunzel and Georgios Moschidis.

The fellowships support the students’ final year of study at Princeton and are awarded to one Ph.D. student in each of the four divisions (humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering) whose work has exhibited the highest scholarly excellence. The Jacobus Fellows were honored at Alumni Day ceremonies Saturday, Feb. 24.

Edwards, a doctoral student in mechanical and aerospace engineering, earned his B.S.E. at Princeton in the same department in 2012, with certificates in engineering physics and in robotics and intelligent systems. He began his Ph.D. program in 2013 and plans to pursue an academic career.
