Shah, who becomes one of a handful of Kodak Fellows selected for 2004, will receive an annual stipend of $18,000 plus tuition costs beginning in January for a period of up to three years.

The Kodak Fellowship Program, sponsored primarily by the company's Research and Development arm, has been in existence for more than 20 years and is designed to cultivate mutually beneficial partnerships between industry and academia. Kodak currently awards approximately five to eight fellowships annually to science and engineering students enrolled in Ph.D. programs at the nation's top universities. These fellowships are highly competitive and are based on field of study and academic excellence.

In addition to financial assistance, the fellowship provides summer visits to Kodak Laboratories in Rochester, N.Y. and other opportunities for interaction with Kodak personnel. Kodak Fellows usually receive job offers at the company's research labs at the completion of their Ph.D. degree.

Shah, 25, of Ahmadabad, India, will work in the areas of coding and image processing under the supervision of Dr. Aria Nosratinia, associate professor of electrical engineering in UTD's Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
