ABOUT ALEX COHN & THE GRANT

This year's recipients are Isabel Perez-Albuerne '22 and Kayla Vinh '22. With the grant funding, They will create a digital archive that will include family history, a series of essays, a compilation of primary sources, and a short film or documentary. These products will revolve around how the governmental systems of communist countries have affected both of their families—who sought political refuge from either Vietnam or Cuba—and how these countries have survived in an ever-growing capitalist world.
