Karen Furlani, in tribute to her late husband and former UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences professor, Edward P. Furlani (PhD 1982, MA 1980, BS 1977), has pledged $100,000 to create an endowed fund to be used for the purpose of providing two annual scholarships to deserving undergraduate students, one from CBE and one from electrical engineering, who plan to go on to graduate school to pursue a career in research.


This year’s CBE inaugural recipient was William O’Brien, who was honored at the CBE Undergraduate Awards ceremony in May.
