Students chosen for Dean’s Doctoral Fellowship

Six College of Education doctoral students have been chosen to participate in the College of Education’s 2014-2015 Dean’s Research Doctoral Fellowship initiative, a four-year program that recognizes outstanding scholarly accomplishments and the academic potential of newly admitted research doctoral students.

The following students were chosen for the fellowship:

  • Caleb Chadwick, Department of Counseling and Psychological Services
  • Kayla Myers, Department of Early Childhood Education
  • Theresa Dell-Ross, Department of Educational Policy Studies
  • Amani Talwar, Department of Educational Psychology and Special Education
  • Matthew Beerse, Department of Kinesiology and Health
  • Susan Cannon, Department of Middle and Secondary Education

Each of the fellows, who are first-year doctoral students in their respective disciplines, will begin their programs this summer or fall and will receive a stipend and a full tuition waiver while completing their coursework.

The fellowship program began during the 2012-2013 academic year and is designed to give its participants the support they need to further develop as researchers, according to Walt Thompson, College of Education associate dean for graduate studies and research.
