Dean’s Research Doctoral Fellowship recipients announced
Three doctoral students from CPS have been chosen to participate in the College of Education & Human Development’s 2017-2018 Dean’s Research Doctoral Fellowship initiative. The fellowship is a four-year program that recognizes the outstanding academics of newly admitted research doctoral students. This is the first time a student from each of the three CPS doctoral programs has been chosen. These results are a testament to the outstanding students entering CPS doctoral programs, and the quality of CPS faculty.
The selected CPS students and their mentors include:
- Casey Hinger (Mentor: Dr. Cirleen DeBlaere)
- Galina Tobin (Mentors: Drs. Dennis Gilbride and Tiffany McNary)
- Aaron McGaughlin (Mentor: Dr. Don Davis)
Each of the fellows, who are first-year doctoral students in their respective disciplines, will begin their program this summer or fall. They will receive a stipend and a full tuition waiver while completing their coursework.
The fellowship program is designed to give participants the support they need to further develop as researchers. Fellows produce original research and publish results in top tier journals. They not only make significant contributions to the college, but also to their chosen fields of study.
