Hluchyj Fellowship

In 2008, University of Massachusetts Amherst alumni Dr. Michael and Theresa Hluchyj founded the Hluchyj Graduate Fellowships. Their fellowship supports two graduate students in the College of Engineering and the School of Nursing with annual stipends of $25,000 each so they can do research in the area of clinical healthcare. The fellowship arrangement has championed an historic collaboration between the College of Engineering, from which Mike Hluchyj earned his a B.S. from the the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in 1979, and the School of Nursing, from which Terry Hluchyj graduated in 1977.
