Past Fellows

The Welder Fellowship Program began under the leadership of our first Director, Dr. Clarence Cottam and the original Trustees. The first student to complete their fellowship was Dr. Thad Box in 1956. Since then, there has been about 375 Welder Fellows that have come through the program. For more information on our Fellowships, visit the ‘About Fellowships’ page. Here are our Fellows through the years…
