Anastasia Ostrowski and Daniella DiPaola, research assistants in the Personal Robots research group, have received an award from the Harold Horowitz (1951) Student Research Fund for their Robot Policy Design Toolkit.
Established in 1999, the Harold Horowitz (1951) Student Research Fund makes awards on an annual basis to one or more students, graduate or undergraduate, enrolled in a degree program in the MIT School of Architecture and Planning. Awards range from $1,000 to $4,000.
The Fund has three primary objectives:
- to support research assistantships and student-initiated research projects
- to support extraordinary expenses of research for students working on advanced degrees
- to support the costs of publication of research results that are of exceptional merit or importance. This may include travel expenses to present papers at conferences.
