2011 NLCSD Fellows Awarded

NLCSD would like to express its gratitude to the Application and Application Review Committee members for all their hard work in revising the application form and criteria and the thorough review, rating and paneling of all the applicants. 

NLCSD is very pleased to announce the new Fellows, along with the names of the Universities to which they applied and have been accepted.  This year, we are accepting two fellows who applied for the first cohort and who proceeded to start programs without the NLCSD Fellowship.  They are in very good standing and will join the first cohort this summer.  Therefore Cohort 1 will have 14 Fellows as will Cohort 2.

Please join us in welcoming all the new NLCSD Fellows and Congratulations to all.  They will meet together for the first time this summer just prior to the OSEP Project Directors Meeting in Washington, DC.
