“Your assistance allows me to have a more robust research experience at UNCG.”

Thank you so much for recognizing my potential to contribute to the education field in concert with my dedicated circle of co-researchers. I am honored to be the recipient of this scholarship, and your belief in our work is greatly appreciated. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Educational Studies with a concentration in Cultural Foundations, and I am in the writing stage of my dissertation centering student voice in higher education. Getting my Ph.D. is an essential part of continuing work in postsecondary education for students with intellectual disabilities, in a way that best allows me to support my students, my team, and make the greatest impact in this field.

Being awarded this fellowship is a great help in paying for important activities related to my doctoral work in the area of community engaged research. Your assistance allows me to have a more robust research experience at UNCG, and I cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support.
