This award fund is the result of a generous bequest from the will of Marie Brown, who was a member of the Office of Graduate Studies and Research from its foundation in 1964 until her retirement in October 1987. It is the intention of the Office of Graduate Studies to recognize outstanding work of PSU graduate degree students and to contribute to their professional development in their own fields by helping to fund their travel to distant sites for scholarly purposes. Awards will be given in varying amounts up to the maximum award per student of $400.00. The total disbursement in any term is variable, depending on the amount available and the applications received.
Congratulations to: April Anson; Tiphaine Dickson; Julia Ruppell; and Maika Yeigh.
