Celebrating Thirty-Four PhD Students with External Funding

Posted: 07.24.2017

The Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (OGPS) would like to take this opportunity to congratulate those students who have secured fellowships for their PhD studies/projects.

Extramural funding is the cornerstone of basic science and translational research. In recent years, the competition for research dollars has become more intense. In this climate, our students tenaciously continue to pursue pre-doctoral funding.
