UNT chemistry doctoral student Sydney Schoellhorn (’19, ’21 M.S.) learned an important lesson when it comes to research funding: rejections are inevitable even for the most experienced of scholars, but it only takes one yes to make a big difference — and make UNT history.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently awarded Schoellhorn a $180,000 pre-doctoral fellowship through its National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

UNT master’s students researching everything from information science to biological sciences competed in UNT’s Toulouse Graduate School’s annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition this spring. Each contestant condensed years of research into a concise three-minute presentation to a non-specialist audience. The competition challenged students to consolidate their research discoveries and convey technical details and abstract ideas using only a single PowerPoint slide and without any additional props or visual aids.
