In Memory

Katherine Belz (Groves)


Katherine Belz Groves Memorial Graduate Fellowship in Nanoscale Science Established through the generosity of Dr. Helene Fulton Belz in memory of her daughter, this fund was established to support a graduate student engaged in innovative education and research at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. The fellowship, which is to be awarded on a competitive basis, will fund a student for the period needed to complete the requirements for a doctoral degree, which is typically five years. Katherine Belz Groves pursued a lifelong interest in studying the group dynamics of education. She established a successful consulting business while also dedicating significant time and effort to helping the disadvantaged through her leadership in a variety of programs, including Chicago's "Share Twenty," in which she tutored inner-city schoolchildren. She moved to New York's Hudson Valley in 1983, where she lived with her husband, CNSE Empire Innovation Professor of Nanoscale Science Dr. Timothy Groves, until her death in 1998.

Kathy was smart, sophisticated and sweet.  She was always friendly and always curious.  I loved being in classes with her, because her gift for inquiry made class so much more interesting.  I am so sorry not to see her again.  She was truly a charming person.
