SPH students win Graduate Student Summer Research Fellowships for summer 2008
Four student from the School of Public Health are recipients of Graduate Student Summer Research Fellowships for summer 2008.
Kinesiology is represented by Jaebum Park (advisor: Jae Shim) and Xihe Zhu (advisor: Ang Chen) and NACS is represented by Melissa Pangelinan (advisor: Jane Clark) and Yuanfen Zhang (advisor: John Jeka).
This is the pilot year for this fellowship program, a companion program to the Flagship Fellowships and the Wylie Dissertation Fellowships. Summer Research Fellowships are intended to provide support to doctoral students at "mid-career," that is, in the period approximately before, during, or after achievement of candidacy.
The Fellowships will enable doctoral students to devote a summer of focused work to preparing for or completing a benchmark in their program's requirements. The specific goal of the program is to help doctoral students take a significant step forward in their studies in a timely manner; the overall goals are to reduce time-to-degree, to increase degree completion, and to enhance the quality of the graduate student experience.
