Senior Morgan Williams spent a semester studying wildlife ecology and conservation in Tanzania with the School for International Training. In addition to receiving financial support from the WorldWide Program, Morgan received a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to fund his studies. Morgan says, “I was interested in conducting original research in an international setting, and Tanzania appeared to be an intriguing opportunity... I have become very involved with the rural Maasai community of Elang’ata-Dapash. After conducting extensive research in this community, the Maasai elders asked me to be their American ambassador, an offer I humbly accepted. Currently, I am working on raising funds to create a women’s cooperative that would allow the women of Elang’ata-Dapash to better control their earnings, a task traditionally reserved for their husbands.”
