ALERT Professional Development Award

The ALERT Professional Development Award is intended to encourage our ALERT students to participate in professional development activities throughout the year and to facilitate their future participation in networking and career development opportunities. ALERT selects up to 3 students each year to win a $1,500 stipend that can be used towards attendance at a professional or academic conference and/or to visit and collaborate with a lab related to their ALERT research project.

In November 2017, three ALERT student researchers were selected to receive the first ALERT Professional Development Award:

  • Qi Feng, a Ph.D. student working with Prof. Stan Sclaroff at Boston University
  • Ashraful Islam, a Ph.D. student working with Prof. Richard Radke at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
  • Abubakar Siddique, a Ph.D. student working with Prof. Henry Medeiros at Marquette University

Application information for 2018 is forthcoming.
