NSU Welcomes AAUW International Fellowship Recipient

Sharon

Sharon Lelega

This fall, NSU welcomed AAUW Fellowship Recipient Sharon Lelega from Sudan into the conflict analysis and resolution doctoral program. Sharon intends to focus on women’s participation in the peace process. This will be achieved by conducting a series of consultative meetings with various stakeholders in order to understand the policies related to women’s empowerment and their participation in the peace process.

AAUW fellowship funding helps women manage the growing burden of student debt, an issue that disproportionately affects women. Unique to AAUW’s program, funding may also be used to pay for expenses outside of those traditionally associated with academic study, including childcare and transportation — necessities that can help recipients’ continue, return to, and successfully complete graduate programs. AAUW prides itself on providing fellowships and grants for women returning to either extend or complete their academic goals.  https://www.aauw.org/aauw_check/fellowships_directory/#rid4588
