Meet our 2010 Incoming Cohort!

This September, the Psychology Department welcomed 15 new graduate students, including one student in our new quantitative psychology track and three specializing in animal behavior.  The entry of new students into our program is always exciting.  Each new mind pushes our work in new and potentially fruitful directions.  Of particular interest among the 2010 cohort:

  • One student received a Ronald E. McNair fellowship from the University of Washington and conducted independent research through this program as an undergraduate.
  • One student was recently awarded a National Science Fellowship.
  • Five students were awarded Top Scholar Summer Research Assistantships to provide support for them during their first summer with our program.

All members of this cohort took part in a week long orientation organized by lead teaching assistant Tamara Toub.
