FARE MSc student among UofG finalists in the Story Telling Challenge by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)

Monika Bischof draws on the experiences of subsistence farmers in rural Ethiopia to deepen our understanding of the complexities that cause child marriage. “The value of my research comes from its potential to one day inform productive policy that eliminates child marriage in Ethiopia and in other nations too,” Monika who is advised by Assistant Professor Yu Na Lee expresses her hope that her work will have an impact. With two more finalists from Guelph, Monika is among the top 25 story tellers of this year’s SSHRC Story Telling Challenge. We keep our fingers crossed for her to be among the Final Five winners who will be announced on May 16.
