Wed, Apr 16, 2014

AUSTIN, Texas – A UT economics student will be spending part of his summer studying abroad in Paris, thanks to a fellowship devoted to international education.

Ben Adams, a junior from Austin, Texas, is one of only 40 undergraduate students in the nation selected to receive a 2014 Humanity in Action Fellowship.

The fellowship brings together international groups of college students and recent university graduates to explore different national histories of discrimination and resistance to injustice, as well as examples of contemporary issues affecting minority groups. The objective is to promote a dialogue about understanding and responding to the challenges that democratic countries face as they become more diverse societies.
