Trainee Muñoz awarded Obermann Graduate Fellowship


Cristina Muñoz has been awarded the Obermann Graduate Fellowship and will be participating in the 2015 Obermann Graduate Institute on Engagement and the Academy at the University of Iowa. Muñoz is an IGERT trainee in the GEEMaP (Geoinformatics for Environmental and Energy Modeling and Prediction) program at the University of Iowa and a PhD student in Geographical and Sustainability Sciences.

Muñoz will participate in the Institute for a week during mid-January, where she will be trained and take part in discussions on issues and opportunities of academic scholarship and community engagement. The Institute also provides a small grant and guidance for Muñoz to start her own academic/engagement effort, which she will lead this summer in Los Angeles.
