PERCS Online Ethnography Mini-Grant Winners

In the fall of 2020 we offered two online ethnography mini-grants to support student projects that used contemporary technologies of connectedness to examine communities and cultures.

Our winners were Hannah Boone and Kelly O’Neil. We are excited to support their timely and important research.


Hannah Boone is an Anthropology major with minors in Spanish and Psychology. Her project, “Fear For The Future: Youth Climate Change Activism”, aims to investigate young people’s imaginations of a climate-change-affected future, and how those imaginations drive them to activism.






Kelly O’Neil is a Psychology major with a minor in Human Service Studies and Early Childhood. Her project, “How has COVID-19 affected the Elon student experience?”, explores how the changes wrought by the pandemic have impacted student socialization, their mental health and overall well-being.


Congrats Hannah and Kelly!
