Posted April 17, 2003; 12:40 a.m.
As an environmental engineering major, senior Cynthia Lin is exploring issues of water management in destinations far from her hometown of Emmaus, Pa. The 2003 winner of the Henry Richardson Labouisse '26 Prize, Lin will spend next year in Chile examining a range of factors that impact water resources in that country.
"In Chile there have been a lot of international, national and grassroots efforts to develop plans for managing water resources," said Lin. "It is important to find ways to reconcile these efforts."
The Labouisse fellowship provides $25,000 in funding to support research in developing countries by a graduating senior or a first-year alumnus or alumna who intends to pursue a career devoted to problems of development and modernization. Lin will work in two locations in Chile, combining her findings to support initiatives in water resource management.
