Congratulations to Carlee Forbes, who is one of the inaugural Thomas S. Kenan III Graduate Fellows for the 2018-2019 school year.
About the fellowship, from Dean Guskiewicz: Thanks to a generous gift from alumnus Thomas S. Kenan III (’59), we have created the Thomas S. Kenan III Graduate Fellows Program. Tom is passionate about funding graduate students at a level that enables them to be fully immersed in their scholarship and realize their potential. This new program will help some of our most talented graduate students work toward completion of their doctorates. The 10 students in the first cohort of this program will receive a $5,000 top-up to their regular stipend in AY 2018-19 and a $2,500 summer stipend in either 2018 or 2019.
These graduate fellows will also be invited to attend a graduate seminar I will co-teach beginning in 2018-19 called “The American Professoriate.” I am excited to meet them through this opportunity and learn more about their research and career interests.
