Ph.D candidate earns dissertation fellowship to study in Samoa

Christina Kwauk.jpgChristina Kwauk, Ph.D. student in educational policy and administration-comparative and international development education, from the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development, has been awarded a 2011-12 Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship from the Graduate School. Her topic is Navigating Development Futures: Sport and the Production of Healthy Bodies in Samoa and American Samoa.

The purpose of the Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship program is to give outstanding final-year Ph.D. candidates who are making timely progress toward the degree--typically those who will be entering their final one year or two years of graduate study--an opportunity to complete the dissertation within the upcoming academic year by devoting full-time effort to the research and writing of the dissertation.
