New Round of Staff Scholarship Awards Supports Research in Suicide, Autism
The latest round of Staff Scholarship support funded 100% of eligible proposals. Created by donations from the department administrative team and matched by department funds, the scholarship supports professional development of classified or professional staff who work in our department. The Team Award went to Gavin Crowell-Williamson, Martina Fruhbauerova, Tierney Huppert and Justin Um from the Comtois Lab to attend and present research at the American Association of Suicidology 52nd Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado. Monique Mahony in the Bernier Lab received the Individual Award to offset costs of a UW Certificate in UX & Visual Interface Design that will allow her to design better interfaces to interact with autistic study participants. Congratulations to everyone, and thank you to the Selection Committee (Jason Gordon, Alison Laing, Jason Ramirez, Kathy Ringwood and Becky Sladek) for reviewing the proposals and to the donors who make this program possible.
