PhD Students, Cara Wallace and Shannon Silva


The School of Social Work is proud to announce PhD students Cara Wallace and Shannon Sliva have been selected to receive the Spring 2015 Dissertation Fellowship from the Office of Graduate Studies. Both students will receive a $9,700 stipend to assist with tuition fees in a dissertation or doctoral completion course.  In addition to financial assistance, the dissertation fellowship provides students with time to focus their research efforts exclusively on completing the final stages of their doctoral studies, as well as complete their degrees. Dissertation fellowships are available to doctoral students with approved dissertation proposals or prospectuses who have completed all or most of the research needed to complete their dissertations. Fellowship recipients must be focused largely on writing their dissertations and not conducting new research.

The School of Social Work is proud of both Cara Wallace and Shannon Sliva and wish them well as they finish their dissertations and much success in securing an academic position.
