Congratulations Eastern Washington University student Alexis Guizar-Diaz! Alexis has been selected as an EWU McNair Scholar and awarded a summer research internship. McNair Scholars must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, are first generation college students and low-income and/or underrepresented students, and are selected for their promise as scholars and commitment to attaining a PhD. Alexis holds an Associate of Arts degree from Spokane Community College and is now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Philosophy. His key research interests are political economy, rural & agrarian communities, and Latina/o/x populations. He is a member of the American Sociological Association. Alexis plans to conduct research this summer in Washington’s Columbia Basin under the mentorship of Dr. Edwin Elias from the Department of Race and Culture Studies.
We're so excited to have Alexis join us as a McNair Scholar!
