Dr. Jana Giles received a prestigious Louisiana Board of Regents grant. As part of the Regents Awards to Louisiana Artists and Scholars (ATLAS) Program, a panel of out-of-state experts evaluated a grant proposal written by Dr. Jana Giles, University of Louisiana Monroe associate professor of English, and deemed it "excellent." Based on the panel's recommendation, the Board of Regents funded Giles’s project, allowing her a year-long sabbatical to complete her project. Giles’s grant of $38,057 was one of only eight awarded in the state.
