Top Researchers Receive Reynolds Fellowship

Monday, May 13, 2019


Students representing a wide range of educational disciplines received this year’s Thomas L. Reynolds Graduate Student Research Award.

The Reynolds Fellowship was created by its namesake, Associate Provost and Graduate School Dean Tom Reynolds, to assist with the costs that are overlooked in other funding sources and to help students stay focused on their research goals.   The Reynolds Fellowship provides up to $1,500 to doctoral students who have completed three semesters, and to master’s students who have completed at least one semester.

Receiving the Reynolds fellowship for 2019-20 are:

  • Xueying Brown, Infrastructure and Environmental Systems

  • Neda Pouraskari, Educational  Leadership
  • Courtney Rogers, Health Psychology       
  • Ashley Shults, Anthropology      
  • Elina Sukaryavichute, Geography  
  • Hemapriyadarshini Vadarevu, Nanoscale Science

“These students are doing some remarkable research,” Reynolds said. “These grants help ensure they have the opportunity to think, to explore and to do their best work.”
