What does it say about DSU when its students, like you, receive NASA-supported grant funding?
Katie: "Receiving this NASA-supported fellowship really goes to show that attending a smaller school like DSU doesn't automatically kick you out of the running when competing for larger opportunities — like some students think it does. If anything, it made me a better candidate. Having a personal relationship with my department chair, Dr. Bentley, and my research advisor, Dr. Hamilton, allowed them to write stronger recommendation letters than those coming from a larger school where they are 'just a number,' and they were more willing to take time out of their busy schedules to help me with the application itself. The work we're doing here in the Department of Chemistry and Physics is just as important as the larger schools in the state, and this fellowship proves that!"
