Winning Teams Selected for the 2019-20 President’s Award for Global Learning

Oct 30, 2019

Teams of students and faculty members that will create biodegradable embellishments for clothes in Copenhagen, research gaps in diabetes care in Mexico, and leverage technology to deliver improved LGBTQ+ health care in India are among the five winners of the 2019-20 President’s Award for Global Learning.

The award is the signature program of the International Board of Advisors, a select group of influencers who, together with UT President Gregory L. Fenves and senior leadership of The University of Texas at Austin, are working to expand UT’s global network.

“We are grateful to all the teams who submitted a proposal for the 2019-20 President’s Award for Global Learning competition, and we extend a heartfelt congratulations to this year’s awardees,” said Sonia Feigenbaum, senior vice provost for global engagement. “This is a transformational program that advances the university’s internationalization efforts by bringing together teams of students and faculty committed to addressing global challenges from an interdisciplinary perspective. Their commitment to transnational collaboration and to gaining a deeper understanding of themselves, as well as cultures around the globe, is inspiring.”
