Central Michigan University professor Mike Pisani is heading for Paraguay to complete his Fulbright Scholar award program.
Pisani was originally scheduled to spend time in Nicaragua studying the impact of micro-businesses on poverty. Due to continuing civil unrest in Nicaragua, the U.S. State Department has canceled all Fulbright awards to the country for 2018-19.
Instead, Pisani will travel to Asunción, the capital city of Paraguay, and conduct cross-border business and economic research. He will be hosted by the Centro de Análisis y Difusión de la Economía Paraguaya, the nation’s leading economic think tank.
Pisani departs this month and will return to CMU in June.
