About the Glass Age Scholar Program

About the Glass Age Scholar Program

The Glass Age Scholarship is awarded to one student annually at the collegiate level, providing an opportunity to work closely with Corning scientists on a research project to help guide academic glass science research.

Students are required to propose a research project highlighting one of 12 topics important for enabling future advances in glass science and engineering – as cited by an article authored by Corning scientists on the need to continue glass science education and academic research.

The goal of the scholarship is to encourage students studying glass science to begin to conduct work in the areas most important to the glass science industry. By doing so, students will gain a solid foundation to prepare for a future career in industrial glass research, product or/process development, or manufacturing.

Dr. Jeffrey Kohli

"The Glass Age Scholarship is a means for enhanced visibility into the research programs at key universities -- a mechanism for the identification of talent and creativity, and, thus, a tool to support our recruiting efforts for new hires. It’s a message for academia that we value their programs and the students that they nurture and prepare for graduation.”

Dr. Donnell Walton

“It’s exciting to Corning that there is enthusiasm for the future of glass science. Continued interest from students and academic institutions across the world can help us invest in a better future in glass.”
