Fellowship dinner recognizes the achievements of 26 graduate students

The dean of the Graduate School hosted a reception and dinner to celebrate the academic achievements of 26 graduate students selected this spring as recipients of the honorific fellowships.  The honorific fellowships are named and endowed fellowships that support advanced Ph.D. students whose research shows exceptional promise.  The Jacobus Fellowship, given to one Ph.D. student in each of the four divisions (humanities, social sciences, natural and physical sciences, and engineering) is the most prestigious of the honorific fellowships.
