The Oregon University System SYLFF Graduate Fellowships for International Research committee has selected Zafreen Jaffery, Graduate School of Education doctoral student, as a 2010 SYLFF Fellow. The fellowship is awarded annually to exceptional students from diverse backgrounds and fields. Fellows “demonstrate sustained commitment to international concerns and pursuits, exemplify broad vision as well as a focus on a specific issue, and exhibit leadership in collaborating with others in cross-cultural contexts.”
The fellowship is given for one academic year of full-time pursuit of a graduate degree in an Oregon University System institution. Dependent upon the individual Fellow, award monies may be applied to tuition and fees, living expenses, research costs and travel associated with the conduct of research, and other expenses related to graduate study.
Please join us in congratulating Zafreen on this well-deserved fellowship.
