Seven College of Education & Human Development doctoral students were selected for the 2021-2022 cohort of the Provost’s Dissertation Fellowship.
The Provost’s Dissertation Fellowship supports Ph.D. candidates at Georgia State University who are in the dissertation phase of their doctoral degree, allowing them to focus on completing their research and minimize other obligations that might hinder dissertation progress. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund allowed the university’s Graduate School to expand the fellowship, providing fellows with a monthly stipend of $1,500 for up to 10 months.
The CEHD awardees include:
- Marcel Lima, Department of Kinesiology and Health
- Wade Morris, Department of Middle and Secondary Education
- Jee Hye Park, Department of Middle and Secondary Education
- Christopher Rawdon, Department of Kinesiology and Health
- Lidia Quinones, Department of Learning Sciences
- Meredith Wells, Department of Kinesiology and Health
- Jonathan Wesley, Department of Educational Policy Studies
“We are so proud of our college’s 2021-2022 Provost’s Dissertation Fellows. This is an extremely competitive, university-wide fellowship that has been particularly meaningful for our doctoral students whose data collections were delayed due to COVID-19,” said Kris Varjas, CEHD associate dean for graduate studies and research. “The Provost’s Dissertation Fellowship has brought hope and positivity to our CEHD students during challenging times.”
