Generous gift from alumna allows new scholarship, lab improvement

Laura Seidensticker, a 1989 graduate of the Department of Aerospace Engineering, says she feels “it is important to give back to the organizations that have impacted my life.”

She is doing just that, with a generous donation in support of an Aerospace Engineering undergraduate scholarship and funding for updating the department’s Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory.

The department extends a sincere thank you to Laura for her support. Look for more information about her donation in an upcoming news story.
