The Fraser Fellowship was established in 2012 by Dr. Judith A. Bland (A.M., 1970; Ph.D., 1972) as a tribute to Dr. William Dean Fraser for his support and mentorship during her graduate student years in what was then the Microbiology Department. This fellowship was awarded for the first time in 2017.
Thanks to donors like you, the Dean Fraser Fellowship generates an estimated annual income of $1,250 per year. With your support, the department will continue to recognize promising graduate students while paying tribute to a beloved professor. Preference is given to those earning degrees in microbiology.
