The repercussive effect of one act, one person, one gift is indeed powerful. The Glenn and Susan Brace Center for Global Health Scholar Award is predicated on the exponential impact of one person.
The scholars of 2020 face an unprecedented challenge as well as novel opportunities. As the 2020 CGH University Scholar cohort was prevented from traveling due to the pandemic, the Center for Global Health partnered with Schools across Grounds as well as organizations at UVA like the Global Infectious Disease Institute (GIDI) to create faculty-mentored student research opportunities within the context of COVID-19 research and other innovative remote research opportunities.
The 2020 Virtual Environments scholars supported by the Glenn and Susan Brace CGH Scholar Award are Daniel Viet Nguyen and Emily Leventhal, CLAS; mentored by faculty Bethany Teachman, CLAS and Laura Barnes, SEAS. Prior year scholars here.
