GW Professor Pleads Guilty to Embezzling Nearly $1 Million From Grants

Former George Washington University engineering professor Nabih E. Bedewi entered a guilty plea on April 13 to embezzling $991,909 provided by federal grants to the National Crash Analysis Center that he founded. Bedewi submitted inflated invoices and had the money funneled through two companies that he owned and one which he controlled, and also paid over $31,000 to the wife of a family member who pretended to be a graduate student.  An article in the Chronicle of Higher Education (here) discusses the plea.
