Summer Fellowships Program, Now in Third Year, Provides Research Opportunities to 21 Students

April 2, 2012

Thanks to many private donors this year, 21 graduate students will have the opportunity to focus exclusively on their dissertation research this summer.

The students were selected for the quality of their work, their readiness to productively use the time this summer, their mentors' willingness to work with them and provide guidance, and the fact that they have had little previous nonservice funding.

The program is now in its third year. Fellowship recipients for summer 2012 are:
