Six faculty members have been awarded the designation of Mays Faculty Fellowship effective Sept. 1. These professors receive $15,000 for four years to support their research and supplement their summer salary. The fellowships are based on past research performance and potential for future research opportunities.
This year’s recipients include: Ramona Paetzold, management; Powell Robinson, information and operations management; Arun Sen, information and operations management; Mike Wilkins, accounting; Manjit Yadav, marketing; and Jing Zhou, management.
The college uses part of the general endowment given by Lowry Mays to fund a total of 15 fellowships at one time, says Dr. Ricky Griffin, executive associate dean. Last year, five fellowships were awarded. Next year, up to four more will be given.
