“Funding from the GAIN Master has given me financial stability and the ability to focus on my research in the middle of a pandemic.” “The GAIN Master’s Fellow assistantship has given me the opportunity to further study robotics to apply towards agricultural environments where manual labor is still intensive and a rapidly growing population must be sustained. I am honored and excited to have received this award from the UGA graduate school, as it is allowing me to have a positive impact in an industry that we all rely on.” “I am beyond grateful for the funding opportunity UGA has provided me. For the first time, I feel a strong sense of being and obligation toward an institution. I look forward to advancing common goals alongside brilliant and caring faculty and peers. UGA has quickly become home for me, and this opportunity allows me to devise ways I can give back to the community on a much quicker timetable. Thank you!” “Never could I have imagined being able to study my passion without the stress of supporting myself financially. The funding I was fortunate enough to receive through the Graduate School has allowed me to attend the program I am in today—a program that gives me the skills to succeed in my dream career.”
