BS – PhD Student, Doctoral Student Ambassador and VP of the USF Nursing Alumni & Friends Society Board, Melissa Molinari Shelton RN, MS, received $250 from the USF Women’s Status Committee for laboratory supplies for my dissertation research.  Over 60 applications were reviewed and only 9 were funded.

The USF Women’s Status Committee sponsors MiniAwards to recognize and support women and USF organizations that work for women’s issues. MiniAwards from $250 to $500 are awarded to individual(s) or organization(s) working to support or highlight women’s issues and concerns at USF. The mission of the Women’s Status Committee, one of five President Advisory Committees at USF, is to encourage and support activities that highlight women’s issues and concerns, help ensure equal access to educational opportunities and services provided to women, and recognize leadership qualities in those working to advance women and girls.
