CRP Undergrads Receive Prestigious Scholarships


Two CRP students received highly competitive undergraduate scholarships this spring. Skye Hart (B.S. URS ’18) was selected for a competitive Udall Undergraduate Scholarship. The Udall Foundation awards approximately 60 scholarships annually to students whose work addresses matters related to the natural environment; or, who are Native American and/or Alaskan Native and dedicated to issues those communities currently face. Hart is affiliated with the Tonawanda Band of Seneca as a member of the Snipe Clan, and is researching conditions that affect Native American peoples living in urban areas in the Pacific Northwest.

Hart began to research Seattle-area Native American communities during the summer of 2016, when she was nominated and selected to join the Hunter S. Rawlings III Cornell Presidential Research Scholars program. The Udall Scholarship provides her with financial assistance for tuition, room, board, and other expenses as she continues her studies this fall and advances her research. Alec Martinez (B.S. URS ’18) received a Harry S. Truman Scholarship, which awards $30,000 to undergraduates who intend to pursue careers in public service, to help fund graduate studies. During the spring semester, Martinez participated in Cornell Design Connect’s neighborhood revitalization project in Corning, New York, and he volunteered in an alternative breaks program in New York City, where he worked with Harlem Grown to transform vacant lots into urban farms. In addition to aspiring to public office, Martinez plans to earn a master’s in urban and regional planning, and then start his own urban planning firm and parallel nonprofit.AAP


Spring Semester Field Trips The extreme landscape of Madeira, Portugal, was the setting for a trip taken by undergraduate and graduate students in the architecture option studio taught by Visiting Critic João Almeida and Gensler Visiting Critic Paulo David, titled Designing on the Limit. Volcanic, green, and rugged, Madeira’s high cliffs give dizzying views of narrow pebble beaches, while deep valleys and dense arboreal forest contrast with a harsh environment on the peaks above the cloud layer. For their proposals, most of the students selected sites on the irregular coastline on the tip of the eastern end of the island. Classes in architecture also took field trips to Bogotá; Berlin; Marco Island, Florida; and New York City. Additionally, the Mellon Collaborative Studies seminar traveled to Havana, Cuba. Art students visited Berlin, New York City, and Wells College in Aurora, New York. Classes in CRP took field trips to Buffalo and Rochester, New York, and to Washington, DC. Graduate students in the Cornell Baker Program in Real Estate took a field trip to Dallas and Houston, Texas.AAP
