Presenting the Inaugural “Emerging Scholars”
December 14, 2016
Ten graduate students have won Dean’s Emerging Scholars Research Awards (DESRA). The DESRA is a key component of the recently implemented Dean’s Emerging Scholars Initiative, a joint endeavor of the Graduate School and the Provost’s Office designed to expand the pipeline to faculty excellence and diversity. The DESRA winners come from backgrounds that have been underrepresented in their chosen fields of study (e.g., historically underrepresented minority students, first-generation college graduates, students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, and women in STEM fields); or plan to pursue research related to issues of diversity and identity; or have previously volunteered or are currently volunteering in diversity-related programs. These one-time awards help cover conference and/or field work expenses and are administered by departments and programs.
The award-winning Emerging Scholars are: Stefanie Acevedo (Music), Anne Marie Champagne (Sociology), Craig Lapriece Holloway (Sociology), Tram Luong (Anthropology), Lyndsey McMillon-Brown (Engineering and Applied Science), Anya Montiel (American Studies), Tyler Jackson Rogers (American Studies), Brooke Russell (Physics), jub Sankofa (African American Studies, American Studies), and Tiara C. Willie (Public Health).
