Judy and Inez Reece Fellowship in Poverty and Health

This fellowship is awarded to graduate students in the School of Public Health who are committed to eliminating the impact of poverty on the health of individuals through research and education. It is awarded to first generation students (those who are the first in their families to go to college) and are committed to volunteering for community based organizations that support the needs of socioeconomically challenged individuals. The fellowship can be renewed if the student remains in good academic standing with a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and provides a summary of volunteer activities from the previous year.

Michael Reece created this fellowship in honor of his mother, Judy, and grandmother, Inez, because of the important role they played in his life. Dr. Reece received an MPH from San Diego State University and a PhD from the University of Georgia. He currently serves as Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies for the School of Public Health-Bloomington. Dr. Reece's research is focused on sexual health in both domestic and international settings.
