Research Fellowship

The Risk Sciences Research Fellowship was established in August 2010 to determine graduate student interest in risk and crisis communication research in the College of Communication and Information. Fellow candidates complete 40 hours of voluntary research on a scholarly research project directed by a faculty member, present a paper associated with the project at a national conference, and submit a manuscript associated with the project to a refereed journal. Papers and journal submissions may be co-authored with faculty members and other graduate students. Candidates also attend meetings on graduate student research and engagement.
