Burkina Faso native will research historic election
Raymond Boly spent the first 14 years of his life in the West African nation of Burkina Faso. Next summer, thanks to a travel award from Royal Air Maroc/African Studies Association, the junior Political Science and International Studies major will return to study the first presidential election there in 27 years. His professors nominated him for the award.
Boly, whose family now lives in Rockville, Md., plans to spend at least three weeks traveling throughout the country — about the size of Colorado with a population of 17 million — observing candidates and campaigns in action prior to the November election. He says, “The military is now in charge, and we’re all hoping they oversee peaceful and fair elections.”
