submitted by

Please join me in congratulating Taiwana Shambley who has been selected as the first recipient of the Batalden Student Scholar in Applied Ethics fellowship for 2020-21. This merit-based fellowship provides an Augsburg student with an opportunity to support their scholarly interests in applied ethics. Toward this end, Taiwana will receive a $3,000 stipend over the course of the academic year. Taiwana will work with the Batalden Faculty Scholar in Applied Ethics to pursue her interest in abolition theory, decolonization, and communism in the context of postsecondary education. This fellowship position is generously supported by Paul ’63 and LaVonne (Olson) Batalden ’63, and Stephen ’67 and Sandra Batalden.
