Armenta Awarded Fling Fellowship
Brian Armenta (left), a doctoral student in psychology, was awarded a 2007-08 Maud Hammond Fling Fellowship by the Office of Graduate Studies. The Fling Fellowship — one of UNL’s two major competitive fellowships — provides full support for students to work on their own research for one year without the burden of outside employment, so they can complete the degree in a timely manner. Mr. Armenta was a McNair Scholar at California State Polytechnic University-Pomona and currently serves as a McNair graduate student mentor.
