Miranda Bridgwater Awarded University of Pittsburgh Brackenridge Summer Research Fellowship
Miranda Bridgwater, a former fellow in the 2015 Conte Center for Translational Mental Health Research (CTMHR) Undergraduate Research Program (URP) was awarded a 2016 Brackenridge Summer Research Fellowship. These fellowships are named for Hugh Brackenridge (1748-1816), the founder of the University of Pittsburgh. They support full-time undergraduate students on the Oakland campus while they devote full-effort to conducting an independent research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Brackenridge Fellows receive a stipend of $3,500 for the summer (mid-May through early August) to assure that they can devote themselves full-time to their projects and the associated responsibilities without having to support themselves by means of a summer job.
