Two UO grad students earn awards to do research abroad

"Two UO geography graduate students, Olivia Molden and María Belén Noroña, have been awarded Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad grants.

Noroña and Molden are both doctoral students in the UO Department of Geography. Noroña plans to travel to Ecuador to research the effects of oil development on indigenous people; Molden will go to Nepal to study water security in Kathmandu. Both students will begin their research abroad this fall.

The highly competitive Fulbright program provides federal grants to colleges and universities to help individual doctoral students travel abroad for six-12 months to research modern foreign languages and area studies.

Molden comes from a globe-trotting background, having lived with her family in Egypt, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. She did most of her schooling in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, where she lived with her family for 15 years." Read more
