Guam – Laurie Tumaneng, a University of Guam senior who is working toward a double major in Political Science and Sociology, has been selected for the 2013-2014 Political Science Association Minority Fellowship (APSA MFP).
“Laurie is driven by more than just a thirst for knowledge,” said Dr. Kirk Johnson, UOG Professor of Sociology. “She recognizes a meaningful and purposeful life is one that is marked by both developing one’s inner character and in contributing to an ever advancing civilization.”
The APSA MFP provides students who are entering a Ph.D. Program in Political Science with a fellowship totaling $4,000 for their first two years. This fellowship is in its 44th year and it is a distinguished honor in the political science discipline.
