Congratulations, Jennifer and Carlton!

This summer, we received wonderful news that two of our lab members received two research grants and fellowships. Jennifer K. Leach received the 2013 NACADA Research Grant for her dissertation work entitled “Examining the Effect of Advisor-Student Relationships on Academic Major Decision-Making.” NACADA is the National Academic Advising Association and advances theory, delivery, application and advancement of academic advising to enhance student learning and development.

In addition, Carlton J. Fong received the AERA 2013-2014 Minority Fellowship in Education Research in recognition of the high quality and quantity of work he has produced and will produce in the future.  This award goes through a rigorous evaluation by a selection committee made up of top researchers who are members of the American Educational Research Association and provides funds for his dissertation.

Congrats to the both of them!
