Nancy Galewski, who holds dual master's degrees from Georgia Tech in Public Policy and City and Regional Planning, has been awarded a 2011 Fulbright Scholarship.
Galewski won the prestigious grant for her research proposal for developing community participation in urban service provisions in communities in Bolivia and Peru. She chose the cities of Cochabamba, Bolivia and Arequipa, Peru because both cities face similar difficulties with waste, water, and energy management, and both cities have dealt with anti-privatization demonstrations of basic urban services. Galewski will spend three months in Bolivia and seven months in Peru.
A native of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, Galewski earned her bachelor's degree in International Development and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. She currently works as a research associate at the Enterprise Innovation Institute (EI2).
