Heidi Ballard, an assistant professor in the School of Education, has been selected to be a 2010-2011 UC Davis Hellman Fellow and will receive an award of $20,409 to be used in support of her research activities.
The Hellman Family Foundation has contributed funds to establish the UC Davis Hellman Fellows Program to provide support and encouragement for the research of promising assistant professors who exhibit potential for great distinction in their research and who have documented a need for funding. It is expected that the fellowship will support research and creative activities that will promote career advancement and enhance the individual’s progress toward tenure. This is the third year of the UC Davis Hellman Fellows Program, and applicants in many disciplines across the campus were selected for awards.
