A doctoral student in Environmental Resources and Policy at Southern Illinois University Carbondale recently won two major awards.
Amina Naliaka won a North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NC-SARE) grant. The highly competitive grant will fund her dissertation work on a project titled “A socio-hydrological framework for assessing groundwater sustainability in an irrigated agricultural landscape.”
Second, Naliaka was one of only two recipients of an American Association of Geographers (AAG) graduate summer internship. The award gives her the opportunity to assist the AAG with a virtual summer series of workshops, seminars, working groups and forums, meant for graduate students and recently graduated geographers to learn, meet, and connect with other geographers.
