Each year, LACIS allocates funds to International Academic Programs (IAP), through its Nave grant, in order to support study abroad in the LACIS region.
Undergraduate student Sheng Lee, who is working on a degree in conservation biology, was recently awarded a Nave grant to study with the Ceiba Foundation’s Reef Ecology program in Belize for the summer of 2022.
Sheng, originally from Wausau, WI, plans to eventually work in the field of ecosystem restoration, and stated, “It has been a long working process to get this opportunity to go abroad, and I will be forever grateful for your generosity in helping me achieve this goal. Thank you for your investment in the youth like myself.”
Congratulations to Sheng!
