Emami receives Barbour Scholarship for 2015-16
Niloufar Emami, a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D in the Architecture program, has been selected as a Barbour Scholar for the 2015-2016 academic year. The Barbour Scholarships were introduced to the university in 1917 by Levi Lewis Barbour, and honor women of the highest academic and professional caliber from the area formerly known as the Orient (encompassing the lands extending from Turkey in the west to Japan and the Philippines in the east) to study modern science, medicine, mathematics and other academic disciplines and professions critical to the development of their native lands.
Recipients are selected based on outstanding academic achievement as well as their potential for contribution to their native lands. Emami is specializing in building technology and the intersection of design, performance and fabrication in architecture.
