In fall 2021, UW welcomed a second cohort of CSLA fellows to campus after having deferred a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. CSLA is a scholarship for students from 17 countries across Africa, Eurasia, South-East Asia, and the Middle East who are admitted to master’s degree programs. It provides fully funded scholarships to individuals who clearly demonstrate academic and professional excellence and a deep commitment to leading positive social change in their communities.
The AY2021–2022 UW–Madison cohort consists of three graduate students who started programs with the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies (Chantheany Mout and May Pannchi) and the School of Human Ecology (Sarakk Rith). To get to know the fellows a little more, the School of Human Ecology wrote up a profile piece about Sarakk’s background, interests, journey to UW, and hopeful future endeavors in an article (click here). And of course, amidst all the hard work studying, professional development, and adjusting, there have been those times to get the Big Ten experience.
