Board Letter

March 6, 2018

ASU student scholars who participated in the university’s Global Development Research program, a USAID fellowship, are grateful to the Board of Directors of the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability for their encouragement and support in making this opportunity possible.

Top-tier master’s, doctoral and post-doctoral students are eligible to apply for research and innovation fellowships through the GDR program. GDR scholars find development projects that suit their interests by browsing an extensive international catalog, then leverage their own expertise to cultivate solutions to complex development challenges.

In this four-minute video, the 2017 GDR scholars express their gratitude and describe how their experiences abroad with this program have shaped the trajectory of their studies and future work in sustainable development.
