The Lucy Robbins Fellowship Award was established in the spring of 2005 in memory of Lucy Robbins, the late wife of WFUHS faculty member Dr. Mike Robbins. In 2014 the award was renamed the Mike and Lucy Robbins Graduate Scholarship Fund. The award will be given annually to a graduate student conducting cancer-related research and will be based on academic ability, including outstanding academic and research expertise, demonstrated leadership, outstanding interpersonal skills and a commitment to the ideals of excellence in academic research. The recipient of the Mike and Lucy Robbins Graduate Scholarship Fund will be selected by a committee of graduate faculty. For 2016-2017, the award will consist of paying for the graduate student’s stipend and a certificate of recognition.
Nominations are invited from the graduate faculty and should consist of a letter of nomination, Graduate School transcript, and current curriculum vitae for the student. Nomination packets should be submitted no later than October 7, 2016 to:
Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

The awardee will be announced toward the end of October 2016.
