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.

Lucía Caballero, a member of the Class of 2019, is pursuing a double major in Geography and Government. Her studies have focused on immigration and refugee rights, political geography, and social justice.

As a Venezuelan and Spanish dual citizen, Lucia has always had an interest in international issues, and her studies at Dartmouth have helped her narrow this interest down to focusing on feminist geopolitics and critical ethnic studies. Her senior honors thesis will seek to understand the border politics of Colombia and Venezuela, given the Venezuelan refugee crisis of the last couple of years. Lucia's advisor is Garnet Kindervater, a Lecturer in the Department of Geography.

After Dartmouth, Lucia hopes to attend law school and become a public defender or an international human rights lawyer to continue to fight for justice around the world.
