The “Moment in Migration” is funded by the Grants-in-Aid Scholarship and Research (GIASR) of Truman State University’s Office of Student Research.

This project would not have been possible without the support of Dr. Amber Johnson, Maggie and Alex’s class advisor for the 2017 project, as well as Dr. Paul Shapiro, Maggie’s research mentor for the original 2016 project.

Thank you to our project advisors, Dr. Alvis Dunn and Dr. Leland Turner. Without your constant support and guidance this project would not have been possible. Additionally, a huge thanks to Leah Tams for all of the technical help and assistance provided along the way.

Finally, thank you to all the people who took the time to be interviewed, including Joel Kabamba, Dr. Sally Cook, Ashley Young, and Megan Kraus. This project would not exist without your insights.

All mistakes are our own.
