Posted: May 20, 2010
Roy Germano, a doctoral candidate in the UT Department of Government, has received the $10,000 Michael H. Granof Outstanding Graduate Student Award at the Graduate School/University Co-op Awards for Excellence in Graduate Education, which recognize distinguished scholarship, research, writing, and teaching.
