Courtney WittekindCourtney Wittekind, a sophomore in the Bachelor of Humanities and Arts Program, has been awarded a Boren Scholarship to fund her project working with Burmese refugees along the Thailand border this summer and fall semesters. Wittekind’s project, “Minority Children and the Effects of Forced Migration on Cultural Understanding and Identity,” will involve both her art and anthropology concentrations, as she’ll be using participatory art and photography techniques to enhance the anthropological framework she’ll be working within. The Boren Scholarship is sponsored by the National Security Education Program. More: http://www.borenawards.org/boren_scholarship
