Recent Recipient: Frank Deryck, '14

Frank Deryck
"I am currently working as an instructor for community colleges in the southern California area, where my teaching specialty is quantitative psychology. I mainly teach research methods courses, and a large part of my work is mentoring undergraduate students in their own independent research. I am able to work effectively with my students since the GRFP gave me more opportunities to develop my own research abilities."
