Two Gates Scholars Awarded Luce Scholarship

  • July 8, 2009

Congratulations to Jeremiah Schwarz (2008, PhD History) and Andrew Gruen (2008 MPhil in Modern Society and Global Transformation) for being awarded the Luce Scholarship.

The Luce Fellowship is awarded to 15 to 18 young Americans each year so that they can take up a professional placement in the Far East.

Jeremiah was awarded the fellowship for 2008-2009 and deferred his Gates Scholarship for a year in order to take up an internship in Singapore.  He is due to return from Singapore this October to take up his PhD in History. 

Andrew has been awarded the fellowship for the coming academic year and will start his PhD in Social and Political Science in October 2010, when he returns from his year in Korea.
