Grads Win Veselka Field Award
Five Texas grads have received the Robert E. Veselka Endowed Fellowship for field work. The field grant--which was awarded to Marina Islas, Christine Bonthius, Jonathan Lowell, Richard Knox, and Katherine Lininger--helps to defray the high travel costs associated with summer field work and is administered annually by the Department of Geography. Students will be representing the University in a variety of countries, from Mexico to the Brazilian Amazon. The award honors Robert E. Veselka, a 1993 Texas Geography PhD who passed away in 1994.
