Congratulations to these new Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellows

The College has awarded several Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowships for the 2008-09 academic year. This award, offered by CALS, was established by the estate of Elsa Thomsen to support outstanding graduate students — either Ph.D. candidates who have established an outstanding research record and attained dissertator status, or outstanding M.S. students who have completed one year of graduate study. The College would like to congratulate these recipients and thank all the nominees who submitted a research proposal:

  • Michael Gray (Bacteriology)
  • Paul David Cook ( Biochemistry)
  • Brent Kaup (Rural Sociology)
  • Zhenyu Liu (Plant Pathology)
