Mark Sessumes Tribute

The purpose of the Mark Sessumes Graduate Fellowship is to provide financial assistance to UT Arlington graduate students interested in improving, studying, or developing the U.S. manufacturing enterprise.  This includes reshoring or bolstering U.S. supply chains, operational efficiency (financial, administrative, or technical production lines), review and study of new technologies, or improving people, process, and products of manufacturing.  Students awarded funds from this scholarship will also be given an opportunity to possibly work as a paid intern at TMAC during their final year of graduate school.  During the internship, students gain valuable hands-on experience working with TMAC field specialists on various customer projects related to their field of study.

This endowment is being established in honor of Mark A Sessumes for the purpose of establishing a fellowship to provide financial assistance to UT Arlington graduate students interested in improving, studying, or developing the U.S. manufacturing enterprise.  If by 8/31/2022, gifts received are insufficient to reach the minimum funding level of $25,000 required for an endowment as described above, no endowment will be created, and the funds may be expended for non-endowed graduate student support as described above. There is no guarantee of an endowment without the University’s required minimum amount to endow.
