Gates LogoThirty-six of the most academically outstanding and socially committed US citizens have been selected to be part of the 2017 class of Gates Cambridge Scholars at the University of Cambridge.

We are delighted to announce that Ms Anna Forringer-Beal, MPhil in Multi-Disciplinary Gender Studies, has been awarded a Gates US Scholarship for 2017-18.

Anna Forringer-BealAnna Forringer-Beal’s undergraduate research at the University of Michigan focused on understanding the experiences of Central American women as they migrated to the United States. While researching at the Undocumented Migration Project, she was able to explore how cultural perceptions of immigration and gender influenced modern policy. As an MPhil student at Cambridge, Anna’s research will compare human trafficking policy in the United Kingdom and the United States to better understand their impact.

Many congratulations to Anna on this great achievement.
