One bright MTSU graduate’s pathway to the stars is being paved with a major monetary boost.
Katelyn Stringer, who graduated from MTSU in May 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in physics, will use her $5,000 fellowship from the Phi Kappa Phi honors society to help finance her graduate degrees in astronomy at Texas A&M University.
“I was not expecting it at all,” Stringer said of her stipend. “It was such a nice surprise.”
Stringer’s academic excellence in high school resulted in a Buchanan Scholarship, which paid for her entire baccalaureate education at MTSU.
