Two Palm Beach Atlantic University students were recently chosen as the recipients of fellowships by the school's LeMieux Center for Public Policy.
Nicole Freire, a senior, will focus on
chemical and biological agents, both those caused by nature through human negligence and those deliberately released. Jenna Wolfram, a junior, will
study the renewal of U.S.-Cuban ties and how it affects Cuban immigration policies, especially considering the world's refugee crisis.
“Through The LeMieux Center Fellows Program, these two Frederick M. Supper Honors Program scholars will pursue an independent study of current or emerging public policy issues concerning individual freedoms, values, rights, religious liberties and institutions in the United States,” the school said.
In addition to a stipend, the fellowship recipients receive up to $2,500 for travel and other expenses. Former Sen. George LeMieux will be on hand to help Freire and Wolfram in their work.
