WomenNC received nineteen highly qualified applicants from 5 of 16 solicited central North Carolina universities and colleges. After carefully considering their academic and service background, creative essays, references, and motivation to intently research and participate at the annual United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), WomenNC CSW Committee interviewed eight competitive candidates. Only fiscal constraints limited our selection to five well-deserved recipients. We are proud to welcome:
- Marzia Nawrozi, a senior at Meredith College, is majoring in International Studies, minoring in Political Science.
- Research Topic: Violence Against Immigrant and Refugee Women in NC
- As a senior at UNC-Chapel Hill, Brian Min is majoring in Psychology and Women’s & Gender Studies.
