Students chosen for Dean’s Doctoral Fellowship

Six College of Education & Human Development doctoral students have been chosen to participate in the College of Education & Human Development’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 and Elementary 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 & Human Development associate dean for graduate studies and research.
