Kayla Dickson Selected as an EWU McNair Scholar and Awarded Summer Research Internship

Congratulations to new McNair Scholar, Kayla Dickson! Kayla was selected by the McNair Scholars’ selection committee on the basis of her passion for research, commitment to attaining a PhD, and overall potential for success in graduate school.

The federally-funded TRIO Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program at EWU selects motivated and talented juniors and seniors who are first-generation and low-income college students, and/or from groups underrepresented at the doctoral level to introduce them to academic research and provide them with effective strategies for getting into and graduating from PhD programs.

Kayla applied to and was accepted by WSU's Summer Research Undergraduate Program in the Hemp Program, which partners with the Global Hemp Innovation Center at Oregon State University, University of California – Davis, and the University of Nevada – Reno. She will be mentored by Dr. David R. Gang, Director of WSU’s Center for Cannabis Policy, Research and Outreach.

We look forward to accompanying Kayla as her research unfolds!
