Aurora receives a Gilliam Fellowship!

Aurora and Lauren received the Gilliam Fellowship, which is given to grad student-advisor pairs to support graduate student research and outreach that increases diversity in science. We are very excited about receiving formal training in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives. This award also provides $4000 per year for DEI initiatives in our department, which will will use to fund an annual DEI retreat for graduate students in the Department of Biology that self identify as from a group underrepresented in STEM fields.
