The Robert J. Lechner Honors College Creativity Fellowship is intended for an Honors College student with a passion for one of these areas:
Prof. Robert J. Lechner, Ph.D., was a long-time faculty member in UMass Lowell's Computer Science Department. He was one of the nicest and smartest people one could ever meet. He and his colleagues help to build our Computer Science Department from scratch. He and his wife Patricia raised a large family of musicians and artists. We honor Professor Lechner's memory through these Honors College Creativity Fellowships. Professor Lechner was a wonderful, very bright, and caring person. What a terrific combination.
