Doctoral student receives W. K. McClure Scholarship

Public Health doctoral student Pragya Gautam Poudel was awarded with a 2019 W. K. McClure Scholarship

The W. K. McClure Scholarship Program offers UT undergraduate and graduate students awards of up to $5,000 for the support of research and creative projects abroad which enhance and promote education for world responsibility.

The scholarship is made possible by the W. K. McClure Fund, a generous donation from the McClure family.  Funding from these scholarships may be applied to any project which offers the potential for the development of knowledge relative to significant issues or problems associated with world affairs and the reduction of international conflict, principally through legal, cultural, political, economic, social, and scientific studies.

Pragya used the funding to assist with her international research in Nepal.
