Kaner group undergraduate research assistant Grant Hushek wins American Society for Metals (ASM) International Los Angeles Chapter scholarship. 

Grant is a UCLA Materials Science and Engineering student conducting research in Professor Richard Kaner’s laboratory in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry.  He worked on developing silica nanospheres with the goal of creating novel forms of carbon for micro scale inductors for future cellular applications. He hopes to work in energy storage or renewable energy before heading back to school for a master’s degree in business administration. Grant enjoys his materials science and engineering curriculum at UCLA and understands how it will support a well-rounded knowledge base as he seeks an entrepreneurial career after graduation. This summer Grant will work for The Boeing Company as a manufacturing engineering intern.

The Los Angeles Chapter of ASM International offers merit-based scholarships for materials science undergraduates living in the Southern California who have demonstrated strength in academics as well as leadership and character.
