Global and Urban Studies Students Awarded Lang Social Science Fellowship
Join us in congratulating Urban Studies majors, Katie Tzivanis, Oliva Koreman, and Rachel Elson, and Global Studies majors, Sofia Mateu-Gelabert, Daniela Ochoa-Bravo, Laura Walton, Martin Cochran, and Daniel DeBoulay who have each received a Lang Social Science Fellowship for summer/fall 2019, a competitive fellowship that provides students with a distinctive experience that fuses social science research training with practical experience in a related non-academic setting. During the fellowship, fellows complete a summer internship at a host organization while also working with an NSSR graduate student mentor to develop a research project related to that internship. In the fall, the fellows complete an independent study course during which they work with their graduate student mentor to complete a substantial research project related to their internship site.
As part of the fellowship Tzivanis, Koreman, and Elson will be interning this summer at Governor Cuomo’s, the Museum of the City of New York and the Participatory Budgeting Project respectively; and Mateu-Gelabert, Ochoa-Bravo, Walton, Cochran, and DeBoulay will be interning this summer at Global Americans, Generation Citizen, the International Peace Institute, Same Sky and the NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs respectively.
