TWU Announces Second Set Of Chancellor's Research Fellows

8/21/02


DENTON — Ten Texas Woman's University faculty have been selected as Chancellor's Research Fellows for 2002-2003.

The program, now in its second year, pairs faculty with strong potential for obtaining external funding for research with mentors who have a successful record of research publication and grants from federal agencies or other sources.

This year's protégés and mentors are: Dr. Lettie Albright, assistant professor of reading, who will be mentored by Dr. Sylvia Vardell, professor of library and information studies; Dr. Bruce Grossie, associate professor of nutrition and food sciences, who will work with Dr. Patti Hamilton, professor of nursing; Dr. Ann Malecha, assistant professor of nursing (Houston), whose mentor will be Dr. Judith McFarlane, professor of nursing (Houston); Dr. Huanbiao Mo, assistant professor of nutrition and food sciences, who will be mentored by Dr. Sarah McIntire, associate professor of biology; and Dr. Philip Yang, associate professor of sociology and social work, who will work with Dr. Melinda Holt, associate professor of mathematics and computer science.

Protégés receive awards of $6,000 and mentors receive $5,000 to use for their individual research needs.

Mentors will coach their protégés on preparing 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.
