Higher Education doctoral student Nydia C. Sánchez was awarded the Graduate Fellowship Award at the 40th annual Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education (TACHE) Conference on February 13.

Sánchez was selected for the award, which had only four recipients, for her research and service contributions to the Hispanic community in Texas. As part of the award, she was given a $2,000 stipend which she has stated she intends to use towards her dissertation research. Her dissertation explores how low-income, high achieving, border-town Latina and Latino college students help build academic capital in their homes and local communities.

TACHE is a professional association committed to the improvement of educational and employment opportunities for Hispanics in higher education.

Sánchez currently serves as a research assistant in the Office of the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at UNT. She is a PhD candidate and expects to graduate in May 2016.
