Ramla Qureshi, a PhD candidate in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, earned a research Fellowship from the American Association of University Women (AAUW).
“Many female students, both international and U.S. citizens, can benefit from the opportunities available with AAUW,” Qureshi says.
The International Fellowship Qureshi received supports women pursuing full-time graduate or postdoctoral study in the U.S. who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents, according to the organization’s website. This program also gives preference to women who have shown a prior commitment to the advancement of women and girls through civic, community or professional work.
Qureshi is the CEO and founder of Women Engineers Pakistan, a non-profit organization that aims to encourage female participation in engineering and STEM disciplines. She has also represented UB and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in a number of different capacities.
Qureshi was part of a team to win UB’s World Challenge Challenge in 2018, and she participated in workshop in Washington D.C. where students learned about the federal policy-making process and discussed their research with congressional staffers.
