15 graduate students receive Completion Fellowships
Fifteen Arizona State University doctoral and MFA students in the arts, humanities, education and social sciences have been awarded fellowships by the Graduate College.
Their diverse research advances scholarship in their fields and pursues solutions to local and global challenges.
• A doctoral candidate in Justice and Social Inquiry explores the unique needs of the deaf community, minorities with disabilities, and female students in traditionally underrepresented majors, with a goal of helping educators increase graduation rates in these groups.
• An interior design student is inspired by Florence Nightingale’s principles of patient-centered hospital design to create healthcare environments that will raise the quality of life for patients, families, and health professionals.
• An Iraq veteran in an MFA Creative Writing program is completing a manuscript of poetry that he hopes will illuminate the lives and experiences of soldiers at home and abroad.
“Completion Fellowships allow graduate students in the final stages of completing their degrees a semester of full-time effort to complete a dissertation, thesis or project,” says Andrew Webber, Associate Vice Provost at the Graduate College. “They are selected on the basis of their outstanding scholarship and the high quality of research that each of these students is pursuing.”
Deadline for applications for the fall 2012 semester is March 30, 2012. Full details are at graduate.asu.edu/completion.
