Former SW CASC Natural Resources Workforce Development (NRWD) fellow, Sonia Delphin-Perez, has been named the 45th Awardee of the William G. McGinnies Graduate Scholarship in Arid Lands Studies. Congratulations, Sonia!

Sonia is a PhD candidate in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of Arizona, where she studies land-use planning and natural resource governance in the Global South. Originally from Paraguay, Sonia’s research is concerned with informing more sustainable land use that considers social and environmental forces.

We wish you all the best in your future work, Sonia!
