CFAC Student and Professor Both Chosen as Kennedy Research Fellows

The Kennedy Center for International Studies has chosen its Kennedy Research Fellows for fall semester 2022. This program has for some time provided research funding for students doing research on international topics; Fall 2022 is the first time the fellowships have also been made available to faculty as well. …

This semester, applicants for the fellowships were asked to focus on their research on the Kennedy Center's Fall 2022 research theme, which is “The Global Religious Experience.” This is also the topic that will be covered during the weekly lecture series, which occurs every Wednesday at noon.

The three faculty research fellows for Fall semester are Jason Combs (Ancient Scripture), Sarah Reed (History), and Marin Leggat Roper (Dance).

The three student research fellows are Clayton Van Woerkom (Anthropology), Becca Driggs (Political Science), and Isaac Richards (Communications).

"Each of our research fellows are doing great research in an area related to global religion," says Mecham. The research fellows will present their research in December, so if you are interested in hearing it, keep an eye out for the announcement about that event.
