Juno Salazar Parreñas, Assistant Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, has received a Deutsches Akademisches Austausch Dienst (DAAD) Research Stay for University Academics and Scientists!

This competitive award supports one to three months of research in Germany. Dr. Parreñas will spend three months in Germany in the summer of 2018, where she will be at the Technisches Universität München and will conduct qualitative research for her project, Multispecies Retirement: Short Biographies of Long Lives. She has also recently received an Arts and Sciences Larger Grant in support of this research.

The DAAD awards merit-based grants for use toward study and/or research in Germany. An independent selection committee recommends applicants for Research Stay grants based on academic achievements, recent publications, and convincing and well-planned research projects. The DAAD is an independent agency devoted to internationalizing academic systems, fostering global responsibility, and is funded by the German government and European Union.

Congratulations to Dr. Parreñas on her achievement!
