Maloy, Montgomery Receive SWOSU NASA Space Grant Scholarships
James Maloy of Arapaho and Anthony Montgomery of Oklahoma City (Putnam City), both computer science majors at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, have been selected to receive NASA Grant Scholarships.
The scholarship award is based on research each will be performing during the spring semester. Maloy’s research is “Threats and Security Practices of Electronic Mail,” while the title of Montgomery’s research is “Spyware.” Maloy is a senior at SWOSU, while Montgomery is a sophomore.
SWOSU faculty mentor is Madeline Baugher of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Computer Systems.
SWOSU is a member of the NASA Oklahoma Space Grant Consortium which provides scholarship funds for students in science and technology areas at member institutions. SWOSU matches these funds with an equivalent amount of its own. Scholarship recipients also perform volunteer service at the Stafford Air and Space Museum, located in Weatherford.
