Vandagriff Endowment Scholars

Named in honor of the late Jaqueline Rae Vandagriff, former TWU student and nutrition major, the program seeks to support TWU students who have an interest in health and wellbeing.

“The Vandagriff Endowment allows us to provide life-changing experiences to students while providing a valuable resource of service to our university community.” said Michelle Reeves, Director of the Health and Wellbeing Initiative

Nutrition Sciences, doctoral student

Hello, I am Miteshri Prajapati, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Nutrition Science at the Texas Woman’s University. It is my absolute honor to be serving as the graduate Vandagriff Nutrition Scholar for the academic year 2020-2021. As a firm believer in “Holistic Health,” my approach has always been to emphasize on the mind, body, spirit connection. My role as a Vandagriff scholar is to help all the students like myself achieve optimal wellness. My long-term goal is to graduate from TWU and make my research and work experience instrumental in developing and enhancing nutrition education programs in developing countries.
