Recently graduated Communication Major Elizabeth Blake is among five Fairfield University’s students who were awarded Fulbright scholarships for the 2007-08 academic year. By conducting a study entitled “Social and Economic Effects of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI),” Elizabeth will explore the implications of the reinforced U.S. patrol controls and policies at the border between this country and Canada. The WHTI is a set of measures mandated by the U.S. Congress as part of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 that resulted from the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission.

After completing this research project, Elizabeth (who also holds a major in Political Science and a minor in Classical Studies) plans to pursue a Master’s degree in Political Science at the University of Windsor
