Harrington Receives Edith Robinson Fellowship From Graduate School

Congratulations to sociology doctoral student, Blair Harrington, who recently received one of two 2017-2018 Edith Robinson Fellowship from the UMass Amherst Graduate School. Blair’s research interests are race, Asian American studies, and educational inequality. Her current research focuses on the role of the family in Asian American college students’ success with the aim to understand how class and gender impact the role of the family in order to break stereotypes.

The fellowship was established in 2011 through a bequest from Edith Robinson, a former director of International Programs. Robinson created the fellowship for UMass Amherst graduate students who have completed at least one year of study, are residents of Vermont or New Hampshire, and are pursuing a degree in the health sciences, environmental science, or psychology.
