"Forringer-Beal is one of just 36 American scholars to earn the scholarship this year... Established in 2000 by an endowment from Bill and Melinda Gates, the scholarship will enable her to spend a year at Cambridge University in England and earn a Master’s degree in multi-disciplinary gender studies.

While at the University, Forringer-Beal studied women’s studies and anthropology, completing an honors thesis with the assistance of Anthropology Assistant Prof. Jason De León about the migration experiences of undocumented women as they move from Central America to the United States."
