Megan Winkeler ’11: Lead Hazard Control Grant

Megan Winkeler, class of 2011, spent her time in the Spring 2009 Grant Writing Class working with the City of Bloomington Legal Department.  This grant was going to be implemented for a Lead Paint Hazard Control Program in the City of Bloomington. In order to receive the grant, the City of Bloomington had to show proof the problem, organizational support, and community support.   Megan began by collecting data to show proof of a hazardous lead paint problem by gathering data for pre-1978 constructed homes in the area.  She also worked with relevant community stakeholders and conducted a logic model to outline all of the factors to be included in the grant application.

Megan received the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship in 2011 to study the effects of conflict on women at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
