Arundati Nagendra, a graduate student in Clinical Psychology, has been selected as one of eight Druscilla French Graduate Fellows in the College of Arts and Sciences for the 2018-19 academic year.
This fellowship is made possible by a generous gift from one of our proud Carolina alums, Druscilla “Drucie” French (B.A. ’71, M.A. ’78). Dr. French is a psychologist and published author of multiple books, and the founder of the Foundation for Mythological Studies in Santa Barbara, California. Dr. French earned her Ph.D. from Pacifica Graduate Institute and, as the recipient of advanced degrees and a UNC alumna, she understands the challenges of graduate work and is dedicated to the success of our Carolina graduate students.
Arun was selected for her accomplishments so far as a graduate student and her potential to have a major impact in the field of clinical psychology. She has distinguished herself as an outstanding researcher and teacher and, as a French Graduate Fellow, Arun will serve as an ambassador in sharing her Carolina experience with prospective graduate students. French Graduate Fellows will attend graduate student recruitment events and an Arts and Sciences Foundation Board meeting, and will receive a one-year $4,000 top-up to her regular stipend and a $1,000 summer stipend. Congratulations, Arun!
