Jewel Lipps, recipient of the graduate fellowship from the National Science Foundation

Jewel Lipps

Jewel, an alumna of the University Honors Program and the Dedman College Scholars Program, has been awarded a prestigious graduate fellowship from the National Science Foundation. Jewel is pursuing a Ph.D. in Biology at Georgetown University.  The award will provide a $34,000 stipend and $12,000 cost-of-education allowance for the next three years. 

In reflecting upon her undergraduate experience at SMU, she shared these comments: “Much of what made my application successful is because of what I learned in undergrad and the opportunities that I had at SMU. I've had a lot of practice and mentorship in fellowship applications thanks to Dr. Hugley-Cook, and it was the Dedman Scholars / UHP that put me on this path to begin with.”
