As you might have heard, thirteen University of Wisconsin-Madison students have received 2014-15 fellowships from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the country’s flagship program for international exchange. Nine of those received the fellowship for graduate research.
One of the recipients is one of LACIS’ own: Ian Carrillo (PhD candidate in Sociology and Community and Environmental Sociology). He will be conducting research in Brazil on the topic of “Feeding Global Energy Demand: The Political Economy of Agrofuels in Brazil”. Congratulations Ian!
