What the fellow says:

"Owing to the fellowship, I could set time aside exclusively for research in an environment with optimum research conditions (Autonomous University of Barcelona), and so I became genuinely and profoundly resolved to develop my work profile as a researcher. I therefore pursued research into matters such as exclusion and grassroots religiosity that are usually difficult to address in Chile even though they are sociologically and anthropologically extremely important. The fellowship has therefore played a crucial role in my training and professional development."
