My Vinson Fellowship with the Institute of Government’s International Center offers an incredible opportunity to learn about the Center’s global instructional and exchange programs. I am excited for the opportunity to be involved with the Center this semester and to develop skills I learned through UGA’s Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities.
It is an honor to be working at the Carl Vinson Institute of Government as a Vinson Fellow this semester. With the guidance of Institute faculty, I plan to research government financial management and accounting.
My project as a Vinson Fellow this semester involved exploring ways to best include local communities and governments in international development projects. I wanted my research with the Institute’s International Center to explore solutions for all types of development projects, and not one specific area.
As a Vinson Fellow this semester, I’ve had the opportunity to learn more about the many facets of creating and implementing public policy. My interests lie in the intersection of education and health, and I feel fortunate to have found a topic that fits perfectly into this overlap.
