TIPI is proud to announce that Anastazja Harris and Hyun Jung (Stephany) Noh, two graduate students who participated in our January grant-writing workshop, have both been awarded major grants to support their research in 2021-22. Congratulations!

Anastazja Harris and her doctoral advisor, Dr. Keri K. Stephens, have received an NSF Dissertation Research Award. Harris’ dissertation explores the role of AI literacy when professionals use AI-based hiring tools to evaluate job applicants.

Stephany Noh is the recipient of a $25,000 award from the Korea Foundation Scholarship for Graduate Studies. Her research focuses on the ways in which various South Korean TV industry stakeholders, including legacy television channels, producers, and distributors, have been responding to the expansion of the global, subscription-based video-on-demand service (SVOD) Netflix. Within the framework of media industries studies, she plans to analyze and develop a theoretical framework addressing new ways in which the production and distribution of K-dramas are redefining hallyu (Korean Wave).
