UA Engineering Senior Named 2018 Churchill Scholar

Feb. 16, 2018

After she graduates with a double major in aerospace engineering and chemical engineering, Namrah Habib's Churchill Scholarship will take her to Cambridge University to study for a master's in science, mathematics and engineering.

Namrah Habib’s first internship came in the second semester of her freshman year at the University of Arizona, when she was hired as an image processing intern. Her job was to count rocks. Four years later, she is counting the scholarships she is being awarded for her undergraduate work as an aerospace and chemical engineering double major.

The Winston Churchill Foundation recently awarded Habib a 2018 Churchill Scholarship, which provides funding to American students for a year of master’s study in science, mathematics and engineering at the University of Cambridge. Habib was previously awarded a 2017 Astronaut Scholarship by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.
