May 4, 2015 - IAS student Jessica Christie has received a UW Bothell Founders Fellowship and a Mary Gates Research Scholarship, both of which support her senior thesis research.  Christie is an Individualized Study major pursuing a self-designed course of study in "Education and Social Justice."  Her research focuses on an oral history project with a single mother to three special needs children adopted from foster care.  It will result in both a parenting resource and an original work of children's literature addressed to the experiences of youth in the foster care system.
