MBA Student Awarded Stanley Fellowship for Research Abroad

Tippie MBA student Florin Oprescu has been awarded a Stanley Fellowship for Graduate Student Research Abroad for the 2006-2007 year.

Oprescu, who is also a doctoral student in public health, will travel to Geneva, Switzerland, this summer to explore ways in which the World Health Organization (WHO) generates, manages, and disseminates health-related information to global audiences, especially to health-related organizations in developing countries. Oprescu's project is titled "Dissemination of Health-Related Information: The WHO Experience."

The Stanley Fellowships are intended to encourage UI graduate students to pursue foreign research and career interests by supporting preliminary field research abroad. Graduate and professional students in all fields of study are encouraged to apply. The awards are given through UI International Programs in the amount of $2,000 each.

These awards are made possible by the Stanley-UI Foundation Support Organization, and are the UI's premier awards for international study.
