Students receive International Project Grants for human rights projects

November 27, 2012

Two students have been awarded grants for independent projects this winter, both focusing on health as a human right. Funding for these grants come from the Weissberg Foundation, supported by Nina Weissberg’84 and her father Marvin Weissberg, and from the Wood International Venture Fund, supported by Betty Chenoweth'55.  For information on applying for a grant from these funds, please see the Office of International Education's grants website here.

This winter's grant recipients are:

Megan Slavish’14 (health and society) who in October attended the American Public Health Association Conference in San Francisco to advance her understanding of health as a human right.  See her report on the conference here

Kun "Cleo" Zhang’13 (international relations, math) will conduct an internship in New York with Asia Catalyst, which works with grassroots groups from marginalized communities in East and Southeast Asia that promote the right to health. 

Congratulations, Megan and Cleo!
