Yarimar Bonilla: Carnegie Mellon Fellow


Congratulations to anthropologist Yarimar Bonilla (Rutgers University), who has just won a 2018 Andrew Carnegie Mellon fellowship to write her next book about disaster recovery in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. According to El Nuevo Día, Bonilla is the first Puerto Rican to win this prestigious award.

The Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program provides support for high-caliber scholarship in the social sciences and humanities. The anticipated result of each fellowship is the publication of a book or major study. Topics of the winning proposals focus on a wide range of complex political, economic, technological, humanistic, and sociological matters.
