Ellen Carol Barreto Research Fellowship

In 2021, the Ellen Carol Barreto Research Fellowship in Health and Society was created to honor the legacy of Ellen Carol Barreto. The fellowship supports student-initiated research projects that contribute to knowledge on the social foundations of health, broadly defined. The fellowship offers Health and Society minors the opportunity to carry out independent research with the guidance of a faculty member. While the fellowship is open to all Health and Society minors, preference is given to women, first-generation college students, and/or those who have historically had less access to opportunities to carry out independent research.
