Four Texas A&M students and two students from other universities have been awarded international development and media grants by the Center on Conflict and Development (ConDev). More than $30,000 was awarded to students in 2014 for their innovative research proposals.
The 2014 winners — Amit Ghoshal, Jessica Gilbert, Diana Juarez-Sanchez, and Dhananjaya Katju — are all graduate students at Texas A&M; Immanuel Afolabi from University of Ibadan in Nigeria and Allyson Krupar from Penn State University make up the rest of the winners. Each of them submitted proposals for international research and will be conducting their studies abroad throughout 2015.
The Student Media Grants Program (SMGP) is an annual photojournalism grant awarded to students interested in using innovative methods to research and chronicle issues facing fragile and conflict-affected nations.
