Henry Willis, a graduate student in Clinical Psychology, is the 2018 recipient of the UNC Institute of African American Research (IAAR) Graduate Student Summer Research Grant.
Graduate Student Summer Research Grants provides funding to masters, predoctoral and professional graduate students in any discipline who are conducting research as part of their degree requirements. Students’ research projects must concern African Americans or the broader African diaspora and have clear relevance to IAAR’s mission. Students must also be in good standing and have completed four semesters of graduate coursework toward a doctoral or two semesters of coursework toward a masters degree at UNC-Chapel Hill. Research must be carried out between the summer months of May-August. All award recipients will present results and progress in their projects through IAAR’s Graduate Student Brown Bag Lecture Series.
