Dr. Shontay Delalue and Robyn S. Schroeder '16 PhD are receiving Graduate Student Council awards for staff members who make a difference for graduate students.
Delalue, assistant provost for global engagement, receives the Wilson-DeBlois Award, which is awarded annually to recognize outstanding contributions to doctoral students and the Graduate School.
The inaugural Bates-Clapp Award goes to Schroeder, who is a postdoctoral fellow and director of graduate studies in public humanities. The Graduate Student Council created the award to honor a staff member who has made outstanding contributions to master's students and the Graduate School. The Bates-Clapp Award is named in honor of Louise Prosser Bates (Mrs. Francis E. Bates) and Lucia Maria Clapp (Mrs. William Noyes), the first women to receive master's degrees from Brown University.
The Wilson-DeBlois Award is named in honor of George Grafton Wilson and Austen K. DeBlois, recipients of Brown’s first Doctor of Philosophy degrees in 1889.
