“The Alumni Student Travel Fund made it possible for me to present my work on the relationship between immunity and microbial community diversity in flies at the 2007 Drosophila Research Conference. I am grateful for this support, which allowed me to interact with the leading scientists in my field.”
— Vanessa Corby-Harris, Ph.D. 2007, Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Arizona

“In my senior year at UGA, I attended a population ecology and genetics meeting to present some of my undergraduate thesis research. My talk went very well and I got some great feedback. This experience made me realize that the whole point of doing science is to share one's research with others, and giving a talk helped me develop the skills I needed to effectively communicate my own ideas and results.”
— Catherine Linnen, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, University of Kentucky

“It was a great honor to receive the Linton and June Bishop Graduate Fellowship, which helped support my final year of thesis research. The Fellowship allowed me to concentrate on my research and publication of my work. This positioned me well for an exciting postdoctoral position at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, where I now study how stem cells become specialized during development.”
— Roger Deal, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, Emory University
