Awards

Damon U. Bryant, SIOP student affiliate and 2003 Robert J. Wherry award winner, was selected as a Harold T. Gulliksen Psychometric Fellow for 20032004. The fellowship is sponsored by Educational Testing Service in Princeton, NJ. Bryant is a PhD candidate at the University of Central Florida.

According to the United States Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, Laura L. Koppes, associate vice president at Eastern Kentucky University, was awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to develop doctoral curriculum, lecture in I-O psychology and human resources management classes, and conduct research at the University of Hradec Kralove in the Czech Republic during the 2004 spring semester. When Laura assumes the editorship of TIP this May, we believe it will mark the first time that TIP has been edited from outside the US.
