Six seniors receive traveling fellowships

Concluding its annual meeting and interviews at Harvard on Dec. 10 and 11 this year, the Michael C. Rockefeller Memorial Fellowships Administrative Board has awarded fellowships to six graduating seniors.

Rockefeller Fellowships contribute $18,000 toward a year of purposeful postgraduate immersion in a foreign culture for candidates at critical stages in their development who feel a compelling need for new and broadening experience.

The six recipients are Ama Francis of Winthrop House, for travel to Brazil; Benjamin French of Leverett House, for travel to Botswana; Laura Jaramillo of Pforzheimer House, for travel to France; Catherine Ntube of Pforzheimer House, for travel to Jamaica; Oliver Strand of Eliot House, for travel to Japan; and Lauren White of Lowell House, for travel to Argentina.
