~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


our Say NO to Violence Against Women Rally planned for Tuesday, December 2nd.  We have reserved the Rotunda and Green
at the FSU College of Law and the event will begin at 10:30 AM, the optimal time to make the noon, six and eleven o’clock TV news
cycles as well as get social media coverage all day.  Our committee members have started working their contacts and have
commitments from several high profile community leaders to attend and show their support.  This event is also to
commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the signing of the National Violence Against Women Act.

Two FAMU-FSU College of Engineering PhD candidates awarded

Zonta Amelia Earhart Fellowships

                                                                                                  
Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) PhD candidates  Puja Upadhyay (left) and Jin Yan were recently awarded
$10,000 Zonta International Amelia Earhart Fellowships.

Puja's research focuses on active flow control of high speed free jets for jet noise reduction.  Yan is attempting
to realize 3D sensing using wire-shaped hybrid photovoltaic sensors as a tool in triboluminescence-based aerospace-related
structural health monitoring systems.

The Amelia Earhart Fellowship program helps talented women who are pursuing advanced studies in the typically male-dominated
fields of aerospace-related sciences and engineering, achieve their educational goals. The Fellowship enables these women to
invest in state-of-the-art computers to conduct their research, purchase expensive books and resource materials, and
participate in specialized studies around the globe. Amelia Earhart Fellows have gone on to become astronauts, aerospace
engineers, astronomers, professors, geologists, business owners, heads of companies, even Secretary of the US Air Force.

Zonta International is a global organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of
women worldwide through service and advocacy. Zonta awards 35 Fellowships each year.
