MIT EECS offers a special graduate fellowship that was established in memory of Paris Kanellakis, an MIT graduate (PHD 1982) and Brown computer science faculty member, who died in a tragic plane accident on December 20, 1995.
The Kanellakis fellowships are the result of a generous donation from General and Mrs. Kanellakis, Paris' father and mother. They are awarded to students accepted into the doctoral program in computer science. In keeping with the wishes of General and Mrs. Kanellakis, we prefer to award these fellowships to students from Greece whenever possible. The Kanellakis family also made a donation to Brown University, where Paris was a faculty member.
More information on the life and career of Dr. Kanellakis can be found here.
