Sierra Roark, 1st year graduate student, won a prestigious award for her undergraduate honors thesis at U Tenn. UT will provide resources for Sierra to travel to Dublin to accept this award. Awards are made “under the patronage of the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, since 2012.”

Bryan Dougan receives 2017 Diller-Gilligan Summer Research Fellowship. “Thanks to support from The Graduate School, I was able to conduct archival work at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. The data I collected there will form part of the historical basis for my future dissertation project. Additionally, I was able to travel to D.C. and Boston to conduct interviews with scholars for a research project on the emergence and practices of scholars who associate themselves with Global Mental Health. These interviews will help me revise my MA thesis into a scholarly journal article.”
