College of Design students showcase Judd projects

Laurie McGinley (MArch candidate) and Angelina Jones (MA Retail Merchandising candiate; DHA teaching assistant) showcased their projects as Walter H. Judd International Fellows on October 13, 2010.

McGinley credited the Judd Fellowship with allowing her to "slow down" and study in detail historic architectural elements that are used to provide personal privacy in dense, urban settings. She identified privacy elements used in Turkish architecture and documented them through photography and field drawings while in Istanbul this past summer.

Jones interned with Women in Progress (WIP) and developed a fair trade education workshop for women business owners in Krobo, Ghana, where Global Mamas jewelry is manufactured. The program introduced business owners to fair trade standards and was a forum for discussion about fair labor practices. Jones's work will help producers meet the necessary labor standards, ensuring that Global Mamas products are fairly traded throughout the supply chain. Jones will aid in the development of a fair trade certification program that WIP can use to certify businesses that produce their merchandise.

The Walter H. Judd International Graduate & Professional Fellowships support the internationalization of the University by providing assistance to students enrolled in master's and professional degree programs, and to increase opportunities for students to study, undertake internships and conduct research projects abroad. A primary goal of the fellowships is to increase exposure to other cultures.

Up to 15 Judd fellowships are awarded annually for both research and internship/study.

Applications are due by noon on February 8, 2011. Students who have never traveled abroad are especially encouraged to apply.
