Four CSD students – two at the undergrad level, one pursuing her AuD, and another seeking a doctoral degree – have been awarded funding to support their research interests.

Emily Garcia, an undergrad, received a grant from the Public Policy Center’s Summer Policy Research Program (SPRP) for her research on bilingual word recognition. She is mentored by Pyscholinguistics Lab Director Kristi Hendrickson.

Abigayle Shekleton, also an undergrad, was awarded an Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates Research Fellowship for Summer 2021. Her mentor is Si On Yoon in the Communication, Memory and Mind Lab.

Sarah Kingsbury, AuD student, won a Student Impact Grant to complete her capstone project, "Investigating the Role of Diet and Nutrition in the Etiology of Tinnitus."

Jina Kim, a doctoral student also in the Psycholinguistics Lab, was awarded a DeLTA Center interdisciplinary grant to further her research on the role of cognitive control in sentence processing.

Bravo to all!
