Dr. Pezzia Wins Award
Congratulations to Carla Pezzia, Assistant Professor of Human Sciences, for being
selected as a recipient of an American Association of University Women (AAUW) American
Publication grant for the 2018-2019 cycle.
This prestigious award provides support to scholars to prepare research manuscripts
for publication. Founded in 1881, AAUW is one of the world’s largest sources of funding for graduate
women, due to the generosity and legacy of generations of AAUW members.
Dr. Pezzia will use the grant funds to develop her dissertation into a book manuscript,
which will highlight the multifaceted approaches employed in highland Guatemala to
achieve and maintain sobriety from alcoholism.
