Lauren Marasco Wins Human Trafficking Essay Award

Jump to Comments

The Monterey Institute of International Studies is pleased to announce that Lauren Marasco, a first year MPA student, has been awarded the $1000 cash prize for her essay submitted to the Anti-Human Trafficking Essay Competition. This year there were several strong entries, making the selection a challenging and rewarding one for the Selection Committee which was made up of two senior faculty members from GSIPM.

The award is given in honor of the late Reverend William Sloane Coffin, a remarkable civil rights and peace activist and Chaplain at Yale University, and is funded by a donation from Dr. Peter Grothe, who was the Reverend’s close friend and saw him as his lifelong mentor. This award and the essay competition is designed to encourage students with professional aspirations to work in this field with the hopes of eradicating and/or preventing human trafficking.

Congratulations to Lauren for her exceptional essay and good luck as you start down your professional path.
