Sarah Ovink Awarded National Science Foundation Dissertation Grant for 2008-09

Sarah Ovink has been awarded $7500 in funding through the NSF Dissertation Improvement Grant program. The National Science Foundation's Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Division of Social and Economic Sciences (SES), and Division of Science Resources Statistics (SRS) award grants to doctoral students to improve the quality of dissertation research. These grants provide funds for items not normally available through the student's university. Additionally, these grants allow doctoral students to undertake significant data-gathering projects and to conduct field and archival research in settings away from their campus that would not otherwise be possible.
