Congratulations to Aseem Hasnain! He was recently awarded the Peacock REACH Fellowship for 2012-2014.
This is a $30,000 fellowship given to one graduate student every alternate year and it supports PhD field work as well as allows the fellow to teach a undergrad course based on her/his dissertation research. It is a two year Fellowship that funds a Ph.D. candidate to conduct field research in one year and then teach a course that is directly related to that research in the second year. This fellowship is named in honor of UNC anthropology professor James L. Peacock for his distinguished and longstanding commitment to global education.
