Hashim Syed–Fulbright Open Study/Research Award (Morocco)

Project Summary: I will characterize resistance mutations associated with antiviral medicine for the Hepatitis C virus in genotype one. Specifically, I will identify resistance to the antiviral Sofosbuvir, the only antiviral available in Morocco. My work will improve the efficacy of current and future treatments in Morocco, contributing to important and necessary research. I plan to conduct this research at the Pasteur Institute in Casablanca, Morocco.

Kathryn McEvoy–Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (Spain)

Project Summary: I am going to be teaching English in Asturias, Spain. I am excited to take the experiences that I have had with ESL in the US to the classroom in Spain. I will use my time outside of the classroom to explore gender equality in Spain. Spain has a complex recent history with regard to gender equality, swearing in the first majority-female cabinet last June while still suffering challenges, like a significant gender pay gap. This makes it fascinating location to study the process of a successful gender equality movement. Through volunteerism at a local domestic violence shelter, I hope to learn more about these strengths and weaknesses while sharing my previous knowledge of working with domestic violence services in the United states. This project will serve as a foundation for me to become an advocate for gender equality in our globalizing world.
