Senior Honor Scholar, Kartik Amarnath was recently awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student scholarship for his project, "Development and Disability: Spatial Access and Agency for Kuala Lumpur’s Blind Population."
Kartik, a biology major and anthropology and philosophy minor, will use the grant to conduct research and study in Malaysia's capital during the 2013-14 academic year. A significant portion of his Fulbright application was devoted to discussing his Honors thesis research and how it has prepared him to conduct independent research on urbanism.
Upon returning to the United States after the completion of his Fulbright experience, Kartik will attend Yale University to continue work in urban disease ecology and environmental planning with a focus on slums.
