A Record 40 Smith Scholars Named to Fellowships

This year’s impressive list of Smith undergraduates and alumnae named to prestigious fellowships is headlined by a record nine Fulbright Fellows with one final result still pending.

An unprecedented 40 fellowships have been awarded to Smith scholars this year, totaling nearly $1 million.

In addition, 43 students and alumnae were either finalists or alternates for competitive fellowships; and of course, none of these impressive results would be possible without the generous assistance of faculty and administrative mentors.
