student who will have a significant future impact on the fields of  
robotics and/or automation through her current or future technical  
contributions. The fellowship carries an award of $12,500 to be used  
for stipend/tuition support, and IEEE regulations require that the  
funds be fully obligated by November 30, 2007 for supporting a
