Congratulations to graduate student Michael Gaddis! He was recently awarded a Dissertation Completion Fellowship by the Royster Society of Fellows for 2012-2013.
Dissertation-year fellows are selected by an interdisciplinary faculty board of the Society. Superior achievement in graduate study, the interest and significance of the dissertation topic, and the potential as future leaders in academic and private sector research are the primary criteria in the selection of dissertation fellows. Dissertation fellowships provide support for current graduate students as they finalize and write their dissertations.
