Smith, House win
Rawls research awards


The Undergraduate Research Program Advisory Committee has named two communications majors to each receive one of the six 2004-2005 Rawls Awards.

Adam Smith won Rawls support for his research project, "AIDS in the Media: Are Journalists Covering the Right Angles?" His School of Communications mentors are Connie Book and Brooke Barnett.

Film major Neeley House was awarded Rawls funding for her work "The Black Mountain College Research Project." Her School of Communications mentor is Ray Johnson.

The funds tied to these awards are intended to support undergraduate research in any discipline, and are available from an endowment established in 2001 from the estate of Virginia Riddick Rawls, the wife of the late Japheth E. Rawls.

A Rawls student may choose to receive the award as a scholarship, a research grant or as some combination of the two.
