To honor the important work of Professor Graham F. Carey in the computational sciences, the Oden Institute has established the Graham F. Carey Computational Science Scholarship. The $2,500 scholarship is awarded annually and gives preference to participants in the Undergraduate CSE Certificate Program and to UT students in the Moncrief Summer Internship Program.
To be eligible for the 2021-22 award, student must be a currently enrolled undergraduate student at the University of Texas at Austin (graduating no earlier than December 2021) and have completed at least 60 hours of course work, a minimum GPA of 3.0, and a demonstrated interest in Computational Science & Engineering.

About Graham Carey
The highly regarded Dr. Carey was a professor of aerospace engineering and engineering mechanics, director of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, and holder of the Richard B. Curran Chair in Engineering. Born in Australia Nov. 14, 1944, Carey earned his bachelor of science degree in applied mathematics with honors from the University of Queensland, Australia in 1966. The Boeing Company in Seattle recruited him in 1968 to help develop the Boeing 747 and the Lunar Rover. During that time he completed his master’s degree at the University of Washington. He left Boeing to pursue his Ph.D. in aeronautics and astronautics, which he completed in 1974. For three years he worked as a research assistant professor at the University of Washington’s Aerospace Research Laboratory and Center for Quantitative Science. In 1977 he joined the faculty at The University of Texas at Austin where he served for 34 years until his death in 2011.
Dr. Carey’s research and teaching activities primarily dealt with techniques in computational mechanics, particularly finite element methods and supercomputing. He was a prolific writer who published more than 250 papers in refereed journals and authored or co-authored 10 books. He served on the editorial boards of eight scientific journals.
