ISU STUDENTS AWARDED FULBRIGHTS

AMES, Iowa -- Three Iowa State students have received Fulbright awards.

Robert Cogdill, Ames; Anthony Shane Ridgeway, What Cheer; and Pamela Schipull, Northwood, were awarded Fulbright Grants for Graduate Study and Research Abroad for the 2002-03 academic year. This prestigious program annually provides 800 opportunities for students to study and research in the country of their choice for one academic year.

Cogdill, will conduct research at a French laboratory on imaging technology with medical applications. Cogdill received an M.A. in agricultural engineering from Iowa State and is now working on a Ph.D. in the same program.

Ridgeway will work with a research group at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He will work on redesigning a microscale medical drug delivery pump and on fabricating and testing a second generation pump. Ridgway is working toward an M.S. in mechanical engineering.

Schipull, a graduating senior and student in Iowa State's Honors Program, is only the second graduating senior at Iowa State to receive a Fulbright award. She plans to work in the Philippines with researchers at the International Rice Research Institute where she will examine how iron and zinc biofortified rice affects iron and zinc deficiencies among Filippino women and children.
