Scholar Wins Undergraduate Student Research Award

Congratulations to Sarah DeMartino who was presented with this prestigious award at the Academic Recognition Ceremony on March 22.  Sarah, a Cooper Honors Scholar, is also part of a student group spearheading a movement to have Brandywine designated as a Fair Trade campus. Her research projects with faculty include a gendered analysis of stress among students, an investigation of dementia within India, and an inquiry into how students cope with culture shock in study abroad experiences. 

Sarah has presented her work at the Association for Women in Psychology conference, the Penn State Regional Research Exhibition at Lehigh Valley, the PSU Brandywine Fall Pride event, St. Joseph's Sigma Xi Student Research Symposium, and the campus EURECA gathering. 

Her faculty mentor has described Sarah as "one of the brightest and motivated students" that he has come to know and praised her social commitment, personal integrity, and intellectual focus.  As he noted, "Sarah deserves this award because she is consistently striving to improve the quality of life around her--here and throughout the world."
