The Graduate School's Semester Dissertation Fellowship program includes the Ann G. Wylie Dissertation Fellowship and the Lee Thornton Endowed Fellowship. Dissertation fellowships provide full-time support to University of Maryland doctoral candidates who are in the latter stages of writing their dissertations. Zhiyue Xia was nominated for consideration of the fellowship in February and has been awarded the Ann G. Wylie Dissertation Fellowship for the coming academic year.
