Brown University offers two special graduate fellowships that were established in memory of Paris Kanellakis, a Brown computer science faculty member who died in a tragic plane accident on December 20, 1995. A special web page is maintained at Brown as a memorial to Paris and his family. The Kanellakis fellowships are the result of a generous donation from General and Mrs. Kanellakis, Paris' father and mother. They are awarded to students accepted into the PhD program in computer science. In keeping with the wishes of General and Mrs. Kanellakis, we prefer to award these fellowships to students from Greece whenever possible.
The Kanellakis family also made a donation to MIT, where Paris received his PhD in computer science, to support graduate student fellowships. A web page describes the MIT program.
