2013 Education and Social Justice Project Presentations

During its fourth year, the Education and Social Justice Project awarded fellowships to four students who spent three weeks with institutions engaged in efforts to promote social justice through education. The 2013 fellows presented their research findings and experiences abroad during this past summer and answered questions from interested applicants for the upcoming year.
Sarah Baran traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to research one of the country’s first microfinance institutions. In Cambodia, Annie Dale partnered with the Apostolic Prefecture in Battambang to examine its efforts to reduce school dropout rates through innovative family support mechanisms. Nicholas Dirago researched the ethos and pedagogy of Fe y Alegría and the College of the Immaculate Conception in Lima, Peru, with a focus on socioeconomic integration in educational spaces. Elisabeth Lembo traveled to Krakow, Poland to explore the revival of Jesuit education in the former communist country.
