Being a full-time student has not only allowed me to move faster through the degree, it has also opened up many opportunities that would not have been as readily available if I had another job to juggle. Hence, I am more able to tie my research into the wider perspective of speech and language research.
The experience of being a Science Fellow in the Speech-Language-Hearing Program has also broadened my horizons considerably, in that I have met many wonderful people from around the world as well as from the U.
The program has a focus on attaining a strong grounding in research combined with an emphasis on clinical, applicable outcomes.
Rose Kfar Rose Dissertation Award is for an outstanding chemistry student, to be selected by the program. The Center runs a weekly seminar, hosts distinguished lecture series, and organizes conferences following a theme which changes each year. Knowing that supporting myself through dissertatuon school was going to be difficult, I had decided to keep my job as a teacher and become a part-time graduate student.
Doctoral Fellowships and Financial Aid
Andrew Silk Dissertation Awardfor a student whose dissertation proposal focuses on people suffering economic hardship, social discrimination, or political repression. These packages include tuition remission and many also include a generous stipend and health insurance. The service assignments associated with the Graduate Center Fellowship are intended to develop scholarly and professional skills.
The fellowship consists of a stipend in the Fall and Spring semesters, a summer research stipend, a graduate assistantship, a tuition award, and eligibility for low-cost individual or family NYSHIP health insurance. The opportunity to serve as a Writing Fellow at Queens College also provided me with new training to use writing as a tool for critical thinking, and has contributed both to my teaching philosophy and to my own research.
All entering doctoral students in the humanities, social sciences, and dsisertation sciences will receive a five-year fellowship package. Fellowship recipients are nominated by disertation doctoral programs to the Office of Educational Opportunity and Diversity, which selects the students who will receive the fellowship. With this time, I am learning a wide range of relevant techniques from people with different backgrounds and skill sets.
This funding provides yearlong fellowships for students working on both early and dissertation-stage research. Ford Foundation Award for Dissertation Research Expenditures is for studens whose dissertation research deals with issues of gender, race, identity, sexuality, or higher education policy.

Athena Pollis Fellowship in Human Rightsfor outstanding students whose research involves international, comparative, or theoretical human rights studies, with preference for applicants of color or from other countries.
The stipend covers expenses such as travel, transcriptions, materials, and other costs and may be combined with other grants, subject to approval. The center encourages the connection between university-based and independent biographers working in print, visual arts, and other media.
Many of the dissertation fellowships will also provide an in-state tuition scholarship. I have also been fortunate to be able to interact closely with colleagues from other labs, the Linguistics Department, and through my supervisor Haskins Laboratories, an independent research facility specializing in the sort of work I hope to eventually do.
