Graduate student Brooke Burrows was recently awarded a fellowship through the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). With an average acceptance rate of 16%, these competitive fellowships provide financial support for graduate education in sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. 

Over the next year, together with Professors Berni Leidner at UMass and Gilad Hirschberger at IDC, Brooke will study people's reactions to the public recounting of large-scale trauma in the US and Israel.
