Fellowship allows BYU student to pursue research in Qatar

The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the Institute of International Education awarded Brigham Young University student Drew Mallory the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship in the amount of $5,000.

Mallory, a senior social work major with a psychology minor, will begin an internship next month at the Doha International Institute for Family Studies and Development in Qatar.

“I am excited to begin participating in policy research and development in the Middle East, something that would not have been possible without the funding from the Gilman International Scholarship,” said Mallory.

“The opportunity to practice social work on an international level is unique in any undergraduate program, and I feel honored to have been selected from amongst my cohorts for this chance," he said.

The scholarship program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies abroad. Such international study is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.

For more information, call Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 or visit the Gilman website at www.iie.org//programs/gilman.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
