May 31, 2012

Elizabeth Woods, Ph.D. candidate in the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience program, has been named the recipient of a CLASS Dissertation Completion Grant for the 2012-2013 academic year. The grant is awarded to outstanding Ph.D. students in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences based on excellence of their dissertation project and timely progress toward the completion of their degree. The grant provides stipends of $20,000 to cover students’ expenses for up to a full academic year while they complete their dissertations. Woods is one of six students selected to receive this grant.

"All of our Dissertation Completion Fellows are outstanding students working on significant research or creative projects in their disciplines," said Dr. Catherine Patterson, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies in CLASS. "Only the most highly qualified students from a department may be nominated for these awards, so the application pool is highly competitive."
