Students win awards

A number of students have won awards in the past year. Candise Lin (Human Development) and Giovanna Morini (Hearing & Speech Sciences) won NSF DDIG awards, for their cross-department and cross-university dissertation projects. Chris Heffner (Neuroscience & Cognitive Science), one of a large group of our ‘IGERT apprentices’ this year, won an NSF GRF award; he will still pursue the full IGERT training program, though without IGERT support. In addition, three students were recognized with university-wide Distinguished Service Awards for their efforts in interdepartmental initiatives that they led through IGERT: Giovanna Morini (Hearing & Speech Sciences), Erika Hussey (Psychology), and Yakov Kronrod (Linguistics).
