Congratulations to HERS Institute scholarship recipients

Each year, several Ohio State faculty and staff women are selected to attend and receive scholarships for the institute. This year Jennifer Cowley, Terri Fisher, Susan Hadley, Joy McCorriston, Sheryl Pfeil, and Judy Tzu-Chun Wu have received scholarships.
