Dissertator Award

In addition to its primary research goal, the SRC also has an educational mission.  The SRC engages graduate students as research assistants and facilitates submission of students’ research proposals.  The SRC also supports young investigators through its dissertator grant award program, the recipients of which are listed below.


Dissertator Award Recipients

Since 1999, the SRC has provided 15 graduate students from the Social Administrative Sciences Division with dissertator awards of up to $3,500.  These funds have enabled students to expand the scope of their dissertation work, resulting in greater impact.  Several of the dissertator award recipients went on to receive national recognition for their work, receiving awards for exceptional presentations made at the annual meeting of the American Pharmacists Association (indicated with * below).
