IIE Graduate Fellowship for International Study Awarded to Doctoral Student
Farming system in Tlaxcla, Mexico

The International Institute of Education has awarded doctoral student, Matthew LaFevor the 2011-2012 Graduate Fellowship for International Study, with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The awards come in lieu of the 2011-2012 Fulbright-Hays DDRA competition, which was eliminated after congressional budget cuts. Of the 120 students originally selected for Fulbright-Hays DDRA awards, 80 were selected to receive Graduate Fellowships for International Study instead. The award provides funding for one year.   

Matthew will continue to conduct dissertation fieldwork in Tlaxcala, Mexico on the mechanics of semi-terracing and water conservation on mountain slopes.
