One of our department’s graduate students, Betty Wang, won two very prestigious and competitive awards: a UFHCC Pre-doctoral Award and an International Student Achievement Award.
The UFHCC Predoctoral Awards are awarded annually to up to five graduate students. These awards are intended to recognize and support outstanding predoctoral candidates who are conducting innovative cancer research. The award allots a total of $10,000 to the recipient for a one-year period: $8,000 for lab supplies and $2,000 for equipment/computer and travel expenses for the student.
The International Student Achievement Awards Ceremony was initiated to highlight the accomplishments of international students at the University of Florida. The awards are designed to recognize students who not only meet exemplary academic achievement, but also a wide range of accomplishments and contributions.
We are so proud of you, Betty! Congratulations!
