Emily Adelizzi - Graduate Student

Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Genetics

Lab: Martine Dunnwald

Dear Emily: 

Congratulations! You have been selected for a fellowship on our Genetics Program NIH T32 Training Grant for the period of July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023. This funding source will provide $26,353 toward your stipend, which covers a large portion of your annual stipend of $31,620 for that time period. It will also cover tuition and fees as well as providing $300 for travel to a professional meeting. 

In addition to the funding provided, this year’s first-time fellowship recipients will enroll in the exciting and innovative course called “Science Communication in the Digital Age” (RHET:7500). Two other University of Iowa training grant PIs and I received T32 supplemental funds to develop this course in 2015 and each year since then, fellowship recipients have taken the course. Please note you should only register for 2 sh of RHET:7500 and those can count towards your seminar requirements in the Genetics program curriculum. 

Your appointment on the training grant is a distinct honor as there were a number of students eligible for this competitive award. It should be listed on your CV as an honor or award. Your selection is a credit to the hard work and success you have already had as a PhD student in the Genetics Program.

Once again, congratulations to you on this notable honor.
