Congratulations to EWU McNair Scholar Alexandria Coronado! Alexandria has been selected as a Capstone McNair Graduate Council Fellow in the Graduate School of the University of Alabama, where Alexandria was accepted by the Political Science PhD Program. This prestigious fellowship provides a stipend for Alexandria's 1st, 3rd, and 5th year of graduate school, with her department providing fellowships for the 2nd and 4th year. Alexandria was also accepted by the Political Science Masters Program at Saint Louis University with full funding and Texas A&M's Bush School Masters of Public Service and Administration program. Alexandria has already found a place to stay in Alabama and is excited to start her path towards her doctorate.
Alexandria is majoring in Political Science with an emphasis in Pre-Law and minoring in Anthropology. At Eastern, she is involved in the Honors Program as well as the International Affairs Community. Her research interests revolve around the ever-growing economic inequalities in the United States. For her EWU McNair Summer Research Internship, Alexandria did research on the food and housing insecurity of undergraduate college students under the mentorship of Dr. Lindsey Upton. She presented her research proposal for this project at the EWU 2020 Virtual Research Symposium.
The EWU McNair staff are so excited for Alexandria and we know she'll do amazing things at whichever program she decides to attend! Click here to read more about Alexandria or her research.
