I always enjoy sharing good news about graduate students here at Michigan.
We learned last week that Jonathan (Yoni) Brack (History) and Dzovinar Derderian (Near Eastern Studies) were among the ten recipients nationwide who were selected to receive support from the Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund for the coming year.
In 2012-13 the fellowship provides an $18,000 stipend plus tuition. It is an annual award that may be renewed for a total of three years. And three others here at Michigan who received support from the Liebmann Fund for this past year have been renewed for next year: Eli Feiman (Political Science), Michael Pifer (Comparative Literature), Alison Marie Vacca (Near Eastern Studies).
The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund supports graduate students who show "outstanding character and ability who hold promise for achievement and distinction in their chosen fields of study." All research and study projects must be carried out in the United States. The University of Michigan is one of the institutions asked to submit three nominees for this national fellowship. The deans at the Graduate School are responsible for selecting the nominees from U-M.
Congratulations to you all!
