Whitney Coyle - Hello all!  

I am in State College at the moment and I wanted to let you know of some good news I received recently. I applied this year for some extra funds through NSF and through the French Embassy in Washington, DC to fund my travels back and forth from France to the United States and I was lucky enough to receive both of the fellowships I applied for:  The NSF-GROW fellowship as well as the French Embassy of the United State's Chateaubriand Fellowship. I am so thankful for these opportunities and I know that ARCS has always had a large part in my success here at Penn State.  Thank you again for all you have done.
