Meet Kennia L. Coronado, 2020 Fund for Latino Scholarship Recipient

Kennia L. Coronado is a Ph.D. student in the department of political science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research interests lie at the intersection of Latinx political behavior, identity, political communication, and representation. Her dissertation will explore how Latinxs are mobilized to participate in U.S. presidential elections – even when they are not eligible to vote – and how these processes matter for their understandings of themselves as political beings. She will use the financial support from the Fund for Latino Scholarship towards data collection efforts for her dissertation. Kennia is an affiliate of the Elections Research Center (ERC) at UW-Madison, a recipient of the 2017 APSA Minority Fellowship, a 2015 APSA Bunche Fellow, and received her B.A. in political science and Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latinx studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
