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.
