Congratulations Eastern Washington University student Alexandria Coronado! Alexandria 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. Alexandria is majoring in Political Science with an emphasis in Pre-Law and minoring in Anthropology. Prior to attending EWU, she graduated from Columbia Basin College with an Associate of Art degree. She is involved in the Honors Program at EWU 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 will look at the food and housing insecurity of undergraduate college students under the mentorship of Dr. Lindsey Upton.
We're so excited to have Alexandria join us as a McNair Scholar!
