Tippie Students Receive 2014 Stanley Awards

Two Tippie students are among 24 University of Iowa students who have received Stanley Awards for International Research to conduct research abroad or pursue learning activities in international studies that are not available on the UI campus.

Jeffrey Ding, from Iowa City, is an undergraduate economics major in the Tippie College of Business and a political science and Chinese major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. He will travel to Shanghai, China, to investigate Chinese public opinion in response to the increased pollution levels.

Jia Yu, from Wenzhou, China, is a Ph.D. candidate in management and organizations in the Tippie College of Business. She will travel to Zhejiang, China, to do a study of the social capital among the bank employees.

Each student received $2,500 toward their research project. The Stanley Awards for International Research are funded by the Stanley-University of Iowa Foundation Support Organization. Recipients are expected to spend a minimum of four weeks abroad and must plan to return to the UI for at least one semester after the period abroad and before graduation.
