The Department of African American Studies (AAS) has recognized two emerging scholars. Courtney Carr (pictured), a master’s student in Pan African studies, is the 2019 recipient of the Carol Mills Young Study Abroad Scholarship. Carr will use the scholarship, awarded by the College Language Association, to study female genital mutilation in Tanzania. Jo Johnson, an AAS major, has won an Undergraduate Research and Creative Works Grant (URCW). Recently established by Syracuse's Office of Research, the URCW Program fosters and supports diverse undergraduate engagement in faculty-guided scholarly research and creative inquiry.
