LAS CRUCES, N.M. — New Mexico State University's Alvaro Romero, an assistant professor of urban entomology, was one of five scientists at Hispanic-serving institutions to receive the 2013 U.S. Department of Agriculture's E. Kika de la Garza Fellowship. "It's an honor to be selected for this fellowship," Romero said. "I want to take full advantage of this opportunity because this is an excellent chance to contribute to education -- to mine and of my students. It is a step forward in my research and it will increase the notability of NMSU."

The competitive three week-fellowship began June 6 and is awarded to professors performing agricultural research. It offers faculty from Hispanic-serving institutions the opportunity to work collaboratively with USDA to gain insight and understanding of the entity.

Each year, participants are selected based on their curriculum vitae and the potential impact their research can have on their respective institutions.
