Summer 2019 Staff Council Scholarship Recipients
Asma Hassan - Staff Scholarship
“This scholarship will be used to cover part of the costs of a Lead By Design training. The training will help to improve my leadership and management skills. I currently manage around 65 tutors in a literacy program, training them in a reading intervention, and placing them at one of our nine school sites. I have a student leader at each site that I train in site-specific management. Next year, I would like to improve site leader training, and tutor support.”
Nicole Ward - Staff Scholarship
“With the help of this scholarship, I will be obtaining a masters degree in nursing education. I am passionate about education and the way it places a person in the unique position to develop, inspire, and encourage new and existing nurses. Though my passion runs deep, I recognized that I still have much to learn regarding how to be an effective teacher. I anticipate learning these skills and much more in this graduate program and hope to ultimately use the degree to become a full time nurse educator.”
Matthew Reeder - Staff Scholarship
“I am grateful for the opportunity to receive a Staff Council Scholarship and will be using it to attend the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) annual meeting in Vienna, Austria. Here, I will present a poster on the demographic and reproductive characteristics, participation, and validation of participant-reported pregnancy/birth outcomes from a multisite study on subfertility. By attending this conference, I will gain valuable experience summarizing and presenting research that I have worked on in my PhD program in Public Health. It will also be a valuable opportunity to network with others in my field with the potential to build collaborative relationships with researchers from around the world.”
