STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS
NSF CREST CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON COMPLEX NETWORKS
TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY, HOUSTON, USA

NSF Center for Research on Complex Networks (CRCN) at Texas Southern University is going to award research scholarships to 15 studnets every year from 2011 to 2016 in three areas of Energy Effiency Wireless Sensor Networks (EEWSN), Urban Transportation Environment Networks (UTEN), and Distributed Computational Networks (DCN), resprectively.

Texas Southern University was founded in 1927 and is now a comprehensive university, offering undergraduate and graduate programs and professional studies. TSU is a four year special purpose institution of higher education dedicated to providing quality instruction, scholarly research, and socially responsible public service. Currently, it has more than 9,500 students and 1,500 faculty and staff in 11 colleges and schools.
