Clara Irazabal-Zurita - Fulbright Scholar Award


Three UMKC Faculty Receive Fulbright Scholar Awards

Three University of Missouri-Kansas City faculty members, Brian Frehner, Ph.D.; Clara Irazábal-Zurita, Ph.D.; and Charles Inboriboon, M.D.; have received prestigious Fulbright U.S. Scholar Awards for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Fulbright program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational program. Award recipients teach, conduct research, and provide expertise abroad in a program designed to build lasting connections between the people of the United States and other countries.
Clara Irazábal-Zurita, director of the Latinx and Latin American Studies program and professor of planning in the Department of Architecture, Urban Planning + Design, received an award to lecture and conduct research at the Universidad de Costa Rica. She will focus on selective (dis)affiliations and (sub)urban implications of middle-class Venezuelan migration to Costa Rica.
The project is an extension of her study of migration and urban planning in U.S. Latinx/immigrant communities and in Latin America, including Costa Rica and Venezuela. Irazábal-Zurita plans to conduct her work in Costa Rica during the summers of 2021 and 2022.Clara Irazabal-Zurita Migration
