CRF Announces Fall Travel Award Winners

The Center for Research on Families is proud to announce the winners for this Fall’s Student Travel Award. Every semester the Center provides funding for students to present their family research at an academic conference. The award helps offset the costs of travel, and allows students the opportunity to meet and present with other researchers in their field. This semester, CRF has awarded a $300 travel award to Sarah Reedy, a PhD student in the Anthropology department, and a $300 travel award to PhD student Amy Newberg of the Psychological and Brain Sciences Department.
