Six students awarded REAL fellowships

Six College of Education graduate students received Research Enhancement and Leadership (REAL) fellowships from the Graduate School. They are: Roehl Sybing, language, literacy and culture concentration; Darius Taylor, research, educational measurement and psychometrics (REMP) concentration; and Amari Boyd, Aurora Santiago-Ortiz, Alisha Smith and Andrew Torres, all in the social justice education concentration. The REAL program is designed to facilitate the recruitment and success of minority students, enrich the university’s intellectual community, and help diversify the professoriate. Doubling the campus’ financial support for minority students, the initiative increases institutional allocation for diversity fellowships to $1.2 million annually. The funding reflects a campus-wide financial commitment from the Office of the Provost and all of the colleges and schools.
