Fellows on the Border

June 1, 2020  • Instittue Staff

The Institute’s Latinos and Society Program announced a new fellowship for leaders from the Borderplex—a binational, tri-state region that encompasses El Paso, Texas; Ciudad Juárez, Mexico; and Las Cruces, New Mexico. The fellowship is part of a $1 million gift from the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation to the Latinos and Society Program and the Society of Fellows, and it builds on Woody Hunt’s legacy of giving to help scale the impact of the Latinos and Society Program. Borderplex leaders will take part in Institute programming, including seminars, events, and roundtables, while also contributing their unique regional perspectives. Fellows will receive financial support to help cover the costs of travel and will also have access to local events. The Institute looks forward to learning from these fellows, who so often find their communities at the forefront of national attention.
