KALAMAZOO--Four Western Michigan University doctoral candidates have been named recipients of Gwen Frostic Doctoral Fellowships during the second round of awards for the 2011-12 academic year.

Frostic Doctoral Fellowships are given twice annually by WMU's Graduate College. They are made possible by an endowment from the estate of the late poet, artist and naturalist Gwen Frostic, a 1929 WMU alumna. The competitive fellowships ranged in amount from $1,000 to $4,000 and are designed to assist doctoral students in all fields with dissertation expenses, including tuition and fees, materials and travel.

These are the four recipients and their research areas.
