BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com)(Source: FAU) — Florida Atlantic University recently announced the launch of the MaryLynn Magar Fellowship at the Max Planck Academy at FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter.
An FAU Magar Fellow is a data science student from FAU High that is pursuing research at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI). The fellowship will include $3,000 to support the student’s research efforts.
“MaryLynn Magar has worked to help create a thriving scientific hub in Jupiter at FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus,” said FAU President John Kelly. “She successfully fought for, and ignited, numerous initiatives that allowed FAU and Max Planck to grow together as partners. We are truly grateful for her longstanding support.”
The FAU Max Planck Academy is the latest partnership between FAU, MPFI and the Germany-based Max Planck Society, expanding on similar opportunities for FAU’s graduate and undergraduate students.
“I am proud to be part of the collaboration between FAU and Max Planck and look forward to seeing what these remarkable students can achieve in the years to come,” said Magar.
This unprecedented program will open the laboratories of Max Planck to select high school students, allowing them to participate in world-class research and scientific discoveries as part of their curriculum. Six high-achieving FAU High students currently are dual-enrolled in an Academy pilot program and are the first to be named Magar Fellows.
