Deidra Hodges Awarded NSF BRIGE Award
Tampa, Fla. (July 21, 2011) ­ Deidra Hodges, a PhD graduate in the Department of Electrical Engineering
has been awarded a competitive National Science Foundation's (NSF) Broadening Participation Research
Initiation Grant in Engineering (BRIGE). Hodges is an assistant professor in electrical engineering at
Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU) in Marietta, Georgia. She was awarded the two-year grant
in the amount of $175,000 for her proposal, "CZTS Thin-Films and Solar Cells by Liquid-Based
Techniques."
The NSF's BRIGE program provides research funding to beginning engineers with the goal of increasing
the diversity of researchers in the engineering disciplines. The goal of the BRIGE solicitation is to
increase the number of proposals to the Directorate for Engineering from individuals who can serve as
role models and mentors for an increasingly diverse engineering student population who will become
the workforce of the future.
Hodges completed her PhD in December 2009 under the supervision of Chris Ferekides, professor in the
Department of Electrical Engineering.
