Adam Hockenberry, a graduate student in IBiS jointly advised by Mike Jewett and Luís Amaral has been awarded a Presidential Fellowship. The Presidential Fellowship is funded by the President of the University and awarded by The Graduate School. This highly competitive award is the most prestigious fellowship awarded by Northwestern University.
Presidential Fellows are students who combine outstanding intellectual or creative ability with the capacity to play an active part in the life of the Society of Fellows, which comprises distinguished faculty members and previous Presidential Fellows. The Society creates future leaders who embrace and support Northwestern’s broad scholarship. All Presidential Fellows participate in the Society of Fellows functions (except for students not in residence) which include quarterly dinners and lunches at which Fellows present their work, an annual retreat, special events (including a speaker series), and various outreach and volunteer activities.
