Seven graduate students in Notre Dame’s Department of Psychology recently won competitive fellowships and scholarships.
Ian Campbell has been awarded a 2016 Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation, which honors students pursuing research-based degrees in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and the social sciences.
Campbell said the NSF fellowship is a great honor, which will give him more time to focus on his research and establish a strong base for his career.
“Without a doubt, I would not have won this fellowship without the help and support of my faculty mentors and the Office of Grants and Fellowships,” he said. “This award is as much a recognition of my advisers and Notre Dame as it is of me.”
He chose Notre Dame for his graduate studies because of the strength of the quantitative psychology program and its faculty.
“My mentors have been instrumental in guiding and directing my research,” he said. “I’ve really felt like my career and my success have always been a top priority for all the faculty I have interacted with.”
Campbell also appreciates the program’s close connection with the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Science—and has earned a master’s degree in ACMS while pursuing his Ph.D. in psychology.
