The Robin and Avril Winks Award honors the memory of Robin Winks, Roth Endowment founding Board member and Yale University history professor, and his New Zealander wife, Avril. Project support goes to a Fulbright scholar from New Zealand who is planning on pursuing graduate study in the United States.
Our 2018 award went to Tess McClure to help support her earn her Master’s degree at Columbia’s School of Journalism. An investigative journalist herself, she will focus on human and labor rights in supply chains, a relatively new subject in investigative journalism.
