Levi Johnson, a doctoral student in the mathematics program, and Patrick Tinsley, a doctoral student in the School of Architecture, are recipients of the 2013 Hardwick Graduate Fellowship, granted through the university's Institute for Studies in Pragmaticism.
Johnson, a native of Forsan, is pursuing his Ph.D. studies in mathematics education. Johnson said the award will support his graduate research project in social network analysis.
Tinsley, a native of Canyon, is pursuing his Ph.D. in land use planning, management and design, with a concentration in historic preservation. Tinsley said the award will fund basic educational expenses as he works toward his doctorate.
Both recipients participate in the institute's weekly interdisciplinary seminar. In the seminar, researchers from diverse disciplines cooperate to solve difficult issues common to many disciplines. The interdisciplinary seminar includes two Horn Professors, one associate dean, a distinguished emeritus math professor, a research professor who joins the seminar electronically from Germany, Johnson, Tinsley and one other graduate student.
