Awards given in 2012-2013

In the first year, the Student Research and Professional Development Funds supported some exciting efforts by students at WNMU. These monies allowed students to complete ambitious projects, as well as attend and present at conferences, ranging from the regional to international stages. Awardees were asked to share their work with the greater WNMU community and most presented at the WNMU Symposium.

We awarded each of the groups and projects noted below, for a total of $11,089.68 through the month of May. That is 83% of our funds being awarded directly to students in the first year of these funds existing at WNMU. The committee feels that is great success for a new initiative at WNMU. You can also see from the list of awardees that students from across campus have taken advantage of this wonderful support, with faculty mentors from many disciplines.

In order to celebrate and advertise these funds for students, we presented a poster at the WNMU Symposium highlighting each of the fund recipients. One special highlight for this year was the “Outstanding Empirical Research” award received by a group of psychology students at the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association annual conference. In the last nine years that students have been presenting at that conference, this is the first time WNMU has won that award.
