2021 Fellowships and Awards Results

Congratulations to Reed student and alumni recipients of national award competitions!

Reed would like to congratulate Alisa Chen '21, who has won a prestigious Thomas J. Watson FellowshipAlisa plans to "spend a year exploring the power and privilege dynamics of ice hockey, a sport they grew up playing in their home state of Michigan." Read more about their plans in Reed Magazine.

Reed is delighted to announce that Patrick Park '22 has been selected as a Goldwater Scholar. This scholarship only selects students who show exceptional promise for becoming leading researchers in their fields. Read more about Patrick in this Reed Magazine article.

Reed congratulates Fulbright awardee Meredith Theus '21, who was awarded a Fulbright Future Scholarship in Australia. CLBR advisor Shania Siron interviewed Meredith about her Fulbright; check out the interview on CLBR's YouTube channel. We would also like to congratulate all of our Fulbright applicants who weren't selected for awards. Many 2020-21 awardees had their awards deferred to the 2021-22 award year, which lead to unprecedented competitiveness in this Fulbright cycle, as there were fewer awards available for new applicants than usual.

Reed College also celebrates Nebiyat Esubalew '21, who has been awarded a 2021 Davis Project for Peace. Her project will take her to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to work on traffic safety near schools. Read more about Nebiyat's project in Reed Magazine.

Congratulations to Birch MacLeod '22, Christopher Barclay '22Ruairi O'Mahony '20, and Ryan Dooley '22 for being awarded Critical Language Scholarships to spend eight to ten weeks in intensive language instruction over the summer.
