Ryan has successfully secured a University of Toronto Excellence Award for his research assistant and our IDS Coop student, Astrid Galvez Ciani. Congratulations to you both!!
Ryan's plan is for Astrid to help with field research on the gendered impacts of integrating Guatemalan smallholders into formal agrifood value chains.
FYI, the UTEA-SSH award of $6,000 provides additional opportunities for research experience to augment the formal research courses offered by the University of Toronto. The program allows undergraduate students to develop an appreciation for the investigative methodology of areas of particular interest, and to make informed decisions about pursuing careers in research.
