Winner of Beinecke Scholarship in support for grad student work. Only 20 scholarships per year and not more than one per institution.
After Dartmouth, Celeste plans to use the support from the Beinecke Scholarship to pursue a Ph.D. in Geography. As a graduate student, she would like to study how children and adolescents from marginalized groups find agency through resilience, reworking and resistance in their everyday lives. In the future, she wants her work to blend academia with activism. Specifically, she hopes to show how cultures--including their embedded notions of race, status, and social hierarchies--are a function of their contexts. With that, she wants to help deconstruct those contexts to bring about more socially just landscapes.
Congratulations to Esty Yanco '13 for being granted the Reynold's Scholarship to pursue clinical study in veterinary medicine. Esty will return to her off-term internship at the National Wildlife Animal Hospital in Ramat Gan, Israel, to further her knowledge and hands-on experience with wildlife emergency veterinary care. Alongside three experts in aviary veterinary medicine, Esty will help care for the 2000+ animals that enter the hospital every year. She hopes to use this valuable experience to gain entrance into an American veterinary school.
