TWU Announces New Class Of Chancellor's Research Fellows

9/3/04


DENTON — Continuing its support of faculty research, Texas Woman’s University has announced ten Chancellor’s Research Fellows for 2004-2005.

The program, now in its fourth year, pairs faculty with strong potential for gaining external research funding with mentors who have been successful at obtaining funds from federal agencies or other sources and at publishing their research.

This year’s protégés and mentors are: Dr. DiAnna Hynds, assistant professor of biology, who will be mentored by Dr. Lynda Uphouse, professor of biology; Dr. Junehee Kwon, assistant professor of nutrition and food sciences, mentored by Dr. Carolyn Bednar, professor of nutrition and food sciences; Dr. Claudia Sanchez, assistant professor of teacher education, mentored by Dr. Ronald French, professor of kinesiology; Dr. Shannon Rich, assistant professor of psychology, mentored by Dr. Charlotte Sanborn, professor of kinesiology; and Dr. Donna Sauls, assistant professor of nursing, mentored by Dr. Patti Hamilton, professor of nursing.

Protégés receive awards of $3,500 and mentors receive $3,000 to use for their individual research needs. Funding is provided by the TWU Chancellor’s Circle and the TWU Foundation.

Mentors assist their protégés in developing their research agendas and grant applications. Protégés are responsible for preparing at least one proposal for external funding during the fellowship year or the following academic year. Both mentors and protégés participate in research roundtables where topics such as finding funding proposals and proposal review and critique are discussed.
