BYU Students win awards, get published at European Union conference

Brigham Young University students won awards and rights to publication for their participation in the European Union Center of California's Sixth Annual Undergraduate Research Conference in Claremont, Calif., last week.

Andrew Christensen, won a full scholarship to the EU Summer School at the University of Rome. Sarah Boman won a scholarship to the University of Washington EU Summer School in Brussels, Belgium.

In addition, three BYU students' papers were selected to be published in an edited volume that is produced after each year's conference: Christensen's "Answering the Immigration Problem: The Prospect of Post-National Identity in Denmark," Boman's "Adapting to the Twenty-First Century: A Flexible NATO," and David Drake's "Sarkozy's New Diplomacy: A Reassessment of the Third Rift in Franco-American Relations."

Of the 41 papers presented, BYU's three selections were the most of any university represented, which included UCLA, UC-Berkeley, the Claremont Colleges, Harvard, Penn State, Drexel, San Francisco State University, and the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

All local expenses were covered by a grant from the European Union Center of California, while airfare from Provo was covered by grants from the Fulton Chair of the College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences and the Department of Political Science.
