Camille Hall ’19 Receives Global Scholars Fellowship

April 23, 2019

Camille Hall ’19 has been selected to receive the 2019 Global Scholars Fellowship.

​​The Global Scholars Fellowship is designed to connect the skills of the liberal arts with on-site knowledge of the world’s people, ideas, and environments, in order to prepare the fellow to lead initiatives adressing current global issues. The fellow is granted up to $30,000 for one year of study or research in at least three sites internationally. Applicants propose projects that couple their academic, professional, or personal interests and combined that the focus on a global issue. They outline their year of exploration, which could include sites new to them or places where they have already spent time. Their home country could be one of the sites as well.

Hall's project will focus the production of a series of videos addressing environmental issues, specifically climate change, sustainability, and pollution. She plans to spend time exploring and interviewing scientists and locals in Mexico, Turks and Caicos, Hawaii, as well as the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Each video that she produces will focus on sharing scientific information in accessible formats, using language that people of any age or level of education can understand, learn, and become more involved in taking positive steps to reduce their ecological footprint.

The fellowship is a culminating piece of the Global Learning Program, funded through the generous gift from Susie McCurry ’71 and the Roland and Ruby Holden Foundation. Hall hopes to "inspire others to look at their individual selves of citizens of the world with power to creat positive change in the face of looming environmental issues." She will return to campus in the fall of 2020 to share with the larger campus community the knowledge gained during her year abroad.
