IBBS Graduate Student Awards

Each year the IBBS honors promising graduate students. Program directors from one of 14 Ph.D. programs and three master’s programs are asked to recommend three first-year students whose scholarship and achievement deserve to be recognized. Students can win one of four awards funded by private donors: William and Mary Drescher Research Award, Thomas J. and Mary L. Kelly Award, Fred and Ruth Kort Young Scholar Award and the Turock Family Foundation Research Award. Below is a listing of all the awardees.
