Nine employees at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., have been selected for the 2002 NASA Fellowship Program, to participate in advanced study at colleges and universities across the country.
They were chosen for their leadership, management ability, work experience and achievements. Depending on the fellowship, the program can involve anything from a week up to several months of intensive study.
The fellowships are competitive, to ensure the most qualified candidates are selected for the right program at the right time in their career. The participants are expected to quickly apply their knowledge and share it when they return to NASA.
The nine Marshall Center participants are among a group of 37 chosen from NASA centers nationwide.
Pamela A. Bourque, an attorney and advisor in the Office of Chief Counsel, was selected for the Strategic Leadership for Women Program at Simmons College Graduate School of Management in Boston.
Debbie Bowerman, operations group supervisor in the Information Services Department, Center Operations Directorate, will participate in the Developing Managerial Effectiveness Program at Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pa.
Dan Dumbacher, deputy manager of the Space Launch Initiative program, was selected for the Senior Managers in Government Program at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.
Steven P. Durham, manager of the Internal Relations and Communications Department, will participate in the Leading with Impact Program at Pennsylvania State University.
Mike Rudolphi, manager of the Reusable Solid Rocket Motor Project, was selected for the Senior Executive Fellows program at Harvard University.
Alex Adams, manager of the Shuttle Assurance Department, was selected for Public Administration Fellowship at Syracuse University in Syracuse, N.Y.
Also selected for the Fellowship Program were Joe T. Howell; Robert Garcia; and Davy A. Haynes.
The candidates must complete detailed applications, and in some instances have personal interviews with a selection panel. Management representatives from across NASA comprise the panel and make the final choices for participation in the fellowship program.
The Marshall Center is a key leader in NASA's efforts in development of space transportation and propulsion systems and technologies, as well as microgravity research, advanced large optics manufacturing technology and manages all of the Space Shuttle's propulsion systems.
