Chelsea Ehlert, a graduate student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., has received the Mary R. Norton Memorial Scholarship from ASTM International Committee E04 on Metallography.
Established in 1975, the Mary R. Norton Memorial Scholarship Award for Women encourages female college seniors or first-year graduate students to pursue the study of physical metallurgy or materials science, with an emphasis on the relationship between microstructure and properties.
Ehlert is pursuing a doctorate in materials engineering at Rensselaer; she received a bachelor’s degree in the same subject from the Institute in 2013. Her thesis will focus on electrochemistry topics and battery research.
A student member of ASTM International, Ehlert is also a member of the American Vacuum Society, the Material Advantage Student Program and the Society of Plastics Engineers, as well as the National Engineering Honor Society Tau Beta Pi and the International Professional Honor Society for Materials Science and Engineering, Alpha Sigma Mu.
