UW-Madison’s Laura Minero has been selected as an awardee in the Ford Foundation's 2016 Predoctoral Fellowship Competition. This award provides financial support for three years and the opportunity to participate in the Conference of Ford Fellows. Minero, a second-year Ph.D. student with the Department of Counseling Psychology, plans to use this funding to develop a mixed-method study that assesses the role and influence of U.S. detention centers on undocumented transgender individuals’ mental health and wellness.
