Copeland Funding THANK YOU!!!

October 6th, 2009

So, a while back, I wrote about how I was applying for Copeland Funding to enhance my Senior Independent Study Project. Well, after about two and a half weeks, I have finally heard back…and I am going back to Senegal, West Africa!!! I am so excited!!! My grant application was approved (and granted in full), so I am really pumped to start planning my trip back (I already booked my ticket). I will be returning for two weeks (12/26/2009-1/8/2010) to research how Senegal is implementing sustainable development practices.

On another note, it is fall break…and I am trying to get a handful of work done. I am at my local library branch back home and I am getting ready to read Jeffrey Sachs “The End of Poverty” for my Economic Development class. I still have to do a handful of IS before Thursday (when I present my topic to all the political science and international relations majors) and a ton more research in general.
