Antonio Tinoco Selected as Recipient of a Ford Predoctoral Fellowship
Antonio Tinoco (2rd year graduate student in the Fasan Group) was awarded a Ford Predoctoral Fellowship this past March. This program is a highly competitive, nation-wide program seeking to increase the diversity of the university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, to maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and to increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students. Selected students have showcased superior academic achievement and a degree of promise of continuing achievement as scholars and as teachers, along with a personal engagement with underrepresented communities and an ability to bring this asset to learning and teaching at the university level.
