Dino Hsu awarded the Friends of the International Center fellowship

Dino Hsu, a 4th-year graduate student in the Cool Star Lab, has been awarded the Friends of the International Center fellowship. This fellowship is awarded to graduate students and medical students that “in some way promote international friendship, understanding, and cooperation in a meaningful way.” Both international scholars and scholars conducting international research with international ties are eligible to apply. Dino was one of 30 applicants selected for this award across UCSD campus.

The Friends of International Center was founded in 1961 to “support international education; to foster friendship, understanding, and cooperation within the international community; and to create a meeting place on the UC San Diego campus for people who share these aims.” The Friends of the International Center fellowship is funded in partnership with UCSD Graduate Division.

Congratulations to Dino!
