Ento Students in the Field

Anh Tran[10/5/2015] Congratulations are in order for Anh Tran, M.S. student under Bob Koch, who was recently selected as the recipient of this year's Dr. Nancy “Rusty” Barceló Scholarship. This scholarship is intended to assist women students with financial need in completing their education at the University, with a special focus on women of color, new immigrants, and first generation college students. Anh was recognized at the annual Celebrating University Women Awards Program.
