Examples of projects include researching sickle-cell disease in Haiti, participating in the Himalayan Health Exchange Kargiakh Expedition, researching caddisfly fauna in the Andes in central Ecuador, and interning at a biodiversity conservation farm in India. Read more about these and the other career-building projects that were funded thanks to the Judd Fellowships and your generous support.

The 2015 fellows met in early May at the Judd Fellows Networking Lunch to get to know each other and compare notes for their upcoming adventures.
