When Henry Herndon '15, '17G arrived at UNH in September 2011, he didn’t have a career in mind; he was just eager to learn “how the world works.” The political science major soon discovered an ardent interest in the politics and economics of climate change and sustainability — the result in part from a study-abroad program in Costa Rica and a semester in Washington, D.C.
In 2013, Cheney enrolled in UNH’s Ph.D. program, commuting from Plymouth to Durham, where he taught undergraduate courses and even published a collection of short stories, Blood: Stories, which won a Hudson Prize for an unpublished collection of poems or short stories from publisher Black Lawrence Press in 2016. His book was featured on New Hampshire Public Radio’s "The Bookshelf."
The Dissertation Year Fellowship is a competitive honor awarded to 15 doctoral students every year who have advanced to candidacy. These awards, which are a maximum tenure of one academic year, include a stipend and waiver of the doctoral research fee. How has the DYF helped the 2017-18 recipients? We will be featuring their stories throughout the academic year.
