Ph.D. Students Earn Fellowship from NIJ

In the first year of the Ph.D. program in Forensic Science at Sam Houston State University, three students received National Institute of Justice Fellowship grants to develop new techniques to preserve DNA in tissues and speed up the identification process, for DNA-based identification of marijuana, and for designer drug identification in crime labs.

The three doctoral students, Amy Sorensen, Rachel Houston, and Jessica Winborn received full scholarships, stipends and travel expenses up to $50,000 annually as part of the fellowship.
