North Carolina State University’s Graduate School awarded three BME graduate students Doctoral Dissertation Completion Grants for Spring 2015. They were Allison Amos, Hayley Dirscherl and Lauren Putvin. The Doctoral Dissertation Completion Grant program provides both funding and intensive mentoring to doctoral candidates who are within six months of completing their dissertations. It is designed to enable candidates to focus full time on the writing of their dissertations, improving the quality of the dissertation and shortening the time required to complete the doctoral degree. BME congratulates Allison, Hayley, and Lauren for their achievement.
