Nancy Quick, who recently graduated with a PhD from the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences, has received the Impact Award from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Graduate School.
The Graduate School awarded 22 graduate students in programs throughout the University with the 2018 Impact Awards and Horizon Awards. The awards celebrate the graduate students’ powerful discoveries that contribute to a better future for people and communities in North Carolina.
The Impact Award recognizes discoveries with a direct impact on our state in the present time. The Horizon Award, created in 2017, recognizes discoveries with future potential to benefit North Carolina. Doctoral and master’s students, working in close collaboration with their faculty mentors, pursue promising new ideas. They then apply their new knowledge to improving human health, strengthening communities and creating greater understanding of our world’s biggest challenges.
The Graduate School announced 17 Impact Award and five Horizon Award winners on March 19. The recipients will be recognized on April 5 at the 20th Annual Graduate Student Recognition Celebration.
