Spring 2019 Staff Council Scholarship Recipients

Claire Leiser - Staff Scholarship

“I completed my Master’s degree in Public Health here at the U and now I work on research projects focusing on environmental exposures.  Thanks to this scholarship, I will be presenting my work on air pollution and pregnancy outcomes at a conference in April.  I will be going back to school in the Fall to pursue my PhD in Epidemiology.  I am a Salt Lake City native and in my free time I enjoy hiking and camping.”

Ginger Cannon - Staff Scholarship

“This scholarship will provide needed tuition funding for my graduate degree, helping to support my pursuit of learning and professional development through higher education. I hope other University staff will consider giving (or continuing!) a financial contribution to the Staff Council scholarship fund so others have the opportunity to achieve their personal goals.”

Laura Hamilton -Loveridge Scholarship

“My scholarship was utilized to pay for my spring tuition for a Conflict Resolution Management Graduate Certificate program here at the U.  I engaged in the program as it will allow me to register as a court-rostered mediator so that I can help mediate foster care cases for DCFS and for the court system in Utah.”


Kristin Mahony Dahlin - Staff Scholarship

“Working in philanthropy on campus, I have the unique opportunity to see first-hand the power of giving. To be a recipient of such a gift, a tangible display of our campus values, I am truly honored and humbled. The Staff Council Scholarship has reduced my financial burden in the pursuit of my MBA, allowing me to focus more on the most important aspect of my education, learning. The generosity and fellowship of our campus community continually inspires me and motivates me towards success. Go Utes!”

Juliana Espinosa - Loverage Scholarship

“As an instructor for Undergraduate Studies (UGS) 1050 Major Exploration, I applied for the Staff Council Scholarship in order to enroll in CTLE 6510, Cyber Pedagogy. I hope to apply the coursework towards exploring the creation of a future online version of UGS 1050 in order to increase availability to University of Utah students.”

Arianna Jensen - Staff Scholarship

“I plan to use this scholarship to help fund a certification examination to become a Certified Clinical Research Coordinator. I hope to pursuing a career in the line of research management, the CCRC examination will help me take the next step in my career.”

C. Scott Balderson - Staff Scholarship

“I am ecstatic to have received a 2019 scholarship from the Selections and Communications Committee of the Staff Council and will use it to attend the annual conference of the 2019 National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP) in April in Providence, RI.  NORDP comprises administrative professionals whose main function is to support the development of research activities, particularly by obtaining external funding.  This conference provides a unique opportunity for me to explore and work toward attaining both my personal and professional goals.”

Ashley Glenn - Staff Scholarship

“Because of the Staff Council scholarship, I am able to both attend and present at the National Academic Advising Association’s Region 9 and 10 Conference this March in Hawaii. This will be my first time presenting at a regional advising conference and my first time collaborating with academic advisors outside of my own department. In our presentation, we will be sharing and discussing intentional data collection processes—both the processes used in International and Area Studies and by our colleagues in the Department of Communication. Additionally, attending the conference will allow me an opportunity to connect with colleagues at the University of Hawaii-Manoa, advisors who do similar work at the intersections of academic advising and international education.”



Tony Pomicter - Staff Scholarship

“I have applied to the Workshop on Leadership in Bioscience at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (New York). The workshop will provide training in situations that require strong management and leadership skills, all in the context of laboratory research, researchers, and the goals and struggles that they experience. This workshop will foster my own growth and contribute to the success of my laboratory and staff. I am grateful to the Staff Council for their continued efforts in maintaining the Staff Scholarship.”
