The Office of Community Partnerships has awarded five grants worth more than $9,400. OCP’s community outreach grants fund student- or faculty-led activities that specifically benefit Idaho’s communities. Two of the grants went to students from Sociology and Anthropology.
• Kali Oliver, a graduate student in anthropology. Oliver’s $1,875 grant is entitled “Aiding the Asian American Comparative Collection.” Her efforts will strengthen the UI Laboratory of Anthropology’s Asian American Comparative Collection (AACC) by expanding the reach of its resources, documentation and comparative artifacts by updating its website and providing online access to a variety of original materials.
• Angela Woods, a senior in sociology. Woods will receive a $1,550 grant for her project entitled “Good Food, Grown Here.” Her project will focus on raising awareness about year-round local food options in Bonner County, Idaho, as well as reducing barriers that exist for low-income families to access local food resources.
