Dartmouth-Sponsored Awards Support Range of Alumni Projects

The Dartmouth Committee on Graduate Fellowships recently announced the 2006 alumni winners of six Dartmouth-endowed awards. "These awards support alumni in research and study endeavors in the United States and abroad, including full-time graduate programs, creative projects, language study, and internships," says Kristin O'Rourke, Dartmouth's scholarship advisor. "Dartmouth's support of these exciting projects, many of which would not qualify for funding through traditional post-graduate fellowships, speaks to the College's commitment to continued academic growth for alumni."
