The Graduate College is pleased to announce that several Texas State graduate students have recently been awarded highly competitive external fellowships.

Aarthy Palani, master's student in healthcare administration, and Rosa Perez Vallejos, master's student in communication disorders, have been awarded the Philanthropic Educational Organization (P.E.O.) International Peace Scholarship, which provides funding for women from other countries pursuing graduate-level study in the U.S. or Canada. Aarthy is from India, and Rosa is from Bolivia.

Dillon Lohr, incoming doctoral student in computer science, was awarded a highly competitive fellowship from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). The GRFP provides three years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), STEM education, and NSF-supported social sciences.

Alisa Hartsell, doctoral student in geography, received the prestigious Boren Fellowship. This fellowship provides funding opportunities to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests and underrepresented in study abroad. Alisa will be studying Mandarin in Shanghai, China, in 2019. 

Dr. Andrea Hilkovitz, external funding coordinator in The Graduate College, has worked closely with these students, recruiting them to apply and advising them throughout the submission process. In the past two and a half years, Dr. Hilkovitz has helped Texas State graduate students apply for almost $4 million in external funding

Congratulations once again to these students on their well-deserved accomplishments! Read more about their stories below.
