We are always delighted when students we have selected for awards are further recognized with external recognition in highly selective competitions.
We are also delighted to repeat the terrific news that Ning Zhang was awarded a Presidential Fellowship. As you will see below, she also received an award from Geography. Ning's adviser is Steven Quiring.
"The Presidential Fellowship is the most prestigious award given by the Graduate School. Recipients of this award embody the highest standards of scholarship in the full range of Ohio State's graduate programs. Presidential Fellows will receive one year of full-time financial support to complete their dissertations unimpeded by other duties." Congratulations Ning!
