Counseling Student Awards
I am pleased to announced that several of our counseling psychology graduate students have been recipients of prestigious awards in the field of counseling psychology. They are:
Zoua Chang (Advisor Jo-Ida Hansen) who is the 2009 recipient of the American College Testing Program-Society for Vocational Psychology Graduate Student Research Award. Zoua received the award for her dissertation, "An investigation of contextual factors and dispositional characteristics in the career development of Hmong American and Caucasian American college students." The award will be presented to Zoua during the APA meeting in August.
Melanie Leuty (Advisor Jo-Ida Hansen) who received the National Career Development Association (NCDA) Graduate Student Research Award for her project, "Exploring the construct of work values." Melanie was presented her award at the NCDA Convention (July 2009) in St. Louis, MO and was invited to present on her research at the convention.
Alisia Tran (Advisor Richard Lee) who is a 2009-2010 Hmong Studies Fellow hosted by the program in Asian American Studies and the Institute for Advanced Study. Alisia's project is "Leaving out Hmong - What do we really leave out?" The fellowship is funded by a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
Congratulations to Zoua, Melanie, and Alisia.
