Cydney is one of seven graduate students at the University of Georgia to receive a 2019 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF GRF). The NSF GRF includes three years of financial support for Cydney’s graduate studies at UGA.
The fellowship program “supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based Master's and doctoral degrees at accredited United States institutions” (https://www.nsfgrfp.org/).
Cydney was also recently awarded a Fulbright research grant for 2020 to support her dissertation fieldwork in Ceará, Brazil. Collaborating with local communities and state agencies, Cydney will study the lived experience of water insecurity by examining the dynamic interactions between individuals, social and political structures, environmental factors, and technology.
