Evergreen alumna, Tigranna Zakaryan, ’13, has been awarded a prestigious Fulbright Research Grant for the 2016 – 17 academic year to study refugee populations in Uganda. Her research will consider local integration strategies for Congolese refugees in Uganda, specifically focusing on how identity formation develops/ changes due to forced displacement. Following her Fulbright work, she hopes to pursue a PhD in anthropology with a focus on contemporary displacement and refugee policy.
Tigranna focused much of her Evergreen study on displaced populations and refugees from global conflict. One of the foundations for her Fulbright proposal came from her participation in an Evergreen consortium program, the School for International Training, where she studied refugee issues in Rwanda in 2012 She also traveled to Armenia on an individual contract during her senior year to explore its history with genocide and displacement, later presenting her findings both to the Evergreen community and at a national conference at Harvard University. She was also a TRiO Peer Leader in her junior year. Currently she is working as the Director of Community Outreach for the Armenian American Museum in Los Angeles.
The Fulbright Program offers grants to study, teach and conduct research for U.S. citizens to go abroad and for non-U.S. citizens to come to the United States. Currently, the Fulbright Program operates in over 160 countries worldwide. Participation in the Fulbright Student Program enables graduating college seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists to study, teach, or conduct research. A bachelor's degree (or equivalent) is generally required by the start of the Fulbright grant period. For more information, see the Fulbright Program website.
