Student Spotlight: Patrick Harned
Patrick Harned is a third-year dual degree masters student at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas, Austin. His research interests include Arab literature, development economics, political emancipation and US foreign policy in the Middle East. In the summer of 2018 Patrick traveled to Amman, Jordan as a Crook Fellow to complete an internship at MIRRA, (Methods for Irrigation and Agriculture), where he conducted research on development in the Jordanian agriculture sector, sustainability in the use of water resources and the use of treated wastewater in rural agriculture and local economic development. Each summer LBJ School students gain real-world experience through internships all over the globe by undertaking summer internships for non-profit, non-governmental or governmental organizations that conduct development projects in the developing world. The grants are funded by the Eleanor Crook Foundation through the William H. Crook Program in International Affairs. William Crook was a pioneer in the global development and the Crook Fellowships honor his impact in the fight on poverty.
