Sahand Rabbani Wins Sterling & Terman Prizes

Apr 19 2008

Congratulations to my Stanford undergraduate mentee, Sahand Rabbani, who today received a Wallace Sterling Prize for ranking in the top 25 graduating seniors in the College of Humanities and Sciences. This is particularly impressive because Sahand has taken two simultaneous bachelor’s degrees in economics and electrical engineering. Besides the Wallace Sterling Award, he has also won a Terman Prize, which is granted to the top 5% of the graduating seniors in the College of Engineering. Sahand was the only student to win both of these honors.
