Brenda Garcia Millan wins prestigious fellowship & teaching award

2017 Tinker Fellow Brenda Garcia Millan (MA International Studies, 2018) has been selected to participate in the prestigious Latino Mental Health International Research Training Program (MHIRT), sponsored by the University of Southern California Department of Psychology. As a MHIRT fellow, Brenda will spend her summer working alongside her faculty mentor, Dr. Shoshana Berenzon Gorn, at the National Psychiatric Institute in Mexico City, where her research will focus on improving access to mental health care for underserved communities. MHIRT is funded by the National Institutes of Mental Health, and is designed to train the next generation of researchers focused on reducing mental health disparities for U.S. Latinx communities. Kristin Yarris, assistant professor of international studies, is also an MHIRT Faculty Mentor.

Brenda was also awarded the distinguished and extremely competitive Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) Award to teach in Madrid, Spain. Starting Fall 2018, Brenda will be working at an instituto (secondary school), where she will prepare students for the Global Classrooms (Model UN) project. Model United Nations is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, or other multilateral body, which introduces students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation, and decision making.

Brenda’s Fulbright ETA award is funded by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Institute of International Education (IIE), and the Community of Madrid.
