Second-year ILP students Aditi Damle and Emily Joynton have each been recently awarded the Graduate Research Development Grant. This grant is designed to further new research and creative projects for graduate students by providing funds up to $500 on a competitive basis.
Aditi plans to use the grant funds to purchase materials for her new illustrative endeavor: paper mache sculptures. Emily has shifted her focus to personal narrative comics, and will use the grant to fund her first foray into professional printing. Examples of both illustrators' new directions will be present in their respective thesis exhibits, opening in the Lazarus Center's Riggs & Leidy galleries on March 31st.
Congrats, Aditi and Emily!
