University of Nebraska President James B. Milliken has announced the eight recipients of 2011-12 Presidential Graduate Fellowships. These prestigious fellowships honor NU graduate students – four at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, two at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and two at the University of Nebraska Medical Center – on the basis of high scholastic performance, personal accomplishment and innovative research. This year, fellowships are presented in teaching, learning and teacher education; business; chemistry; mathematics and computer science; biology; industrial-organizational psychology; cancer research; and biochemistry and molecular biology.
“The recipients of Presidential Graduate Fellowships are among the University of Nebraska’s most outstanding students – future scientists, teachers and business leaders who are accomplishing extraordinary things in the laboratory, the classroom and beyond,” Milliken said. “We are fortunate to have a level of private support that allows us to provide these students an opportunity to devote full time to their academic pursuits. I’m confident we will see great things from each of our fellows.”
Each fellow receives an annual stipend provided through the University of Nebraska Foundation.
