The Rockefeller Center Senior Honors Thesis Grants program provides funding of up to $1,000 for undergraduate students writing a senior honors thesis in the social sciences.

Benny Adapon ’19, an international student from Manila, Philippines, is an Associate Fellow with the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship conducting his senior honors thesis research in Geography.

Benny works in the fields of political ecology, geopolitics, critical development studies, and feminist care ethics – among others – and for his thesis studies the interactions between nonprofit development projects and local marine reserve politics in Sulu-an, Samar, Philippines. Having enjoyed his time in Geography at Dartmouth, Benny plans on pursuing a doctorate also in the same field to continue engaging with his theoretical and research interests whose seeds were planted in classes as early as his freshman year.
