Three students from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES) — Ruth Metzel
’16 M.E.M./M.B.A., Hassaan Sipra
’16 M.E.M., and Sarah Tolbert
’16 M.E.M./I.R. — have received 2016-17 Gruber Fellowships in Global Justice and Women’s Rights
for their work on projects in vulnerable parts of the world.
The Yale program, which is administered by Yale Law School, helps foster international understanding and dialogue in the fields of global justice and women’s rights. The fellowships enable recent graduates of Yale graduate and professional schools to spend a year working abroad on these challenges.
It is the first time that the majority of the Gruber Fellowship recipients are from F&ES.
