Physics Graduate Student Lorena Magaña Zertuche is the winner of the 2022 Advancing STEM Scholarship!

Lorena Magaña Zertuche is the winner of the 2022 Advancing STEM Scholarship! As the call for nominations by the Graduate School said, “Eligible individuals are prospective or current University of Mississippi doctoral students in a STEM discipline whose background, achievements, and experience demonstrate a commitment to contributing to the advancement of women in STEM, regardless of the recipient’s gender or gender identity.” That call also stated that “Priority will be given to the recruitment of new students.” The fact that Lorena was chosen attests to her commitment to advancing women in STEM, and is very well deserved. As Dean Kluck wrote in the award letter, “It was quite difficult to select just one winner. However, the committee felt your leadership to advance women in STEM caused you to stand out from others and is the type of work we seek to recognize with this important award.” Congratulations to Lorena!
