Congratulations to Aris Clemons and Salvatore Callesano!

Aris and Salvatore are the recipients of two prestigious awards from MALS!

Dr. Charles Roeckle Award for Graduate Student Teaching Excellence
This award honors graduate teaching assistants or assistant instructors who demonstrate teaching excellence in the MALS undergraduate classroom or in the mentoring of undergraduate student research projects. 
Américo Paredes Endowed Scholarship

A world-renowned scholar of folklore and the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands, Américo Paredes established an intellectual and institutional legacy that endures to this day. A graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, Professor Paredes was instrumental in the founding of the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) and served as its first director. The Américo Paredes Endowed Scholarship was established to honor his lasting impact on students and the academy.

Each year continuing students (graduate and undergraduate) in Mexican American and Latina/o Studies (MALS) with demonstrated commitments to research and/or social justice may apply for and be awarded this scholarship.
