Sarah Kiersten Ferguson, a GRA in the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement and advanced College of Education doctoral student, is one of five finalists whose research paper was recognized in The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition's grant competition.
The center, based at the University of South Carolina, awards the Paul P. Fidler Research Grant annually. The grant encourages and enables scholarly research on issues related to college-student transitions and includes a $5,000 stipend.
"Research completed as a result of the Fidler grant will be featured in the Journal of The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition. In its sixth year, the Paul P. Fidler Research Grant has become a well-respected and highly competitive grant program," said Jennifer Keup, the center's director.
The NRC received more than 100 proposals from researchers and practitioners for this year's grant competition. Ferguson's paper is titled "Reframing the Conversation: Faculty Mentoring Underrepresented Undergraduate Students in Engineering."
