Cambridge Exchange awarded to Tuckness
Alex Tuckness, a fourth-year College student concentrating in political science, has been awarded the Cambridge Exchange Scholarship to study at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge University, for the 1994-95 academic year.
Tuckness is currently working in Washington, D.C., on an internship with Sen. Christopher Bond, R-Mo. He completed his course work at the University last quarter and will finish his B.A. Paper on John Locke, a 17th-century English philosopher, during spring quarter. He will begin his studies at Cambridge in October.
"I am very excited," Tuckness said. "This is a tremendous opportunity. The scholarship is ideal for me because Cambridge is a center for the study of Locke and English political philosophy."
The University of Chicago/Cambridge University Exchange Scholarship is endowed by an anonymous benefactor of the University. The award includes full tuition, a living stipend, a travel allowance and round-trip airfare for two trips to England. It allows one Chicago undergraduate per year to spend a year studying at Cambridge.
Current second-, third- and fourth-year students are eligible to apply. Selection is based on academic and nonacademic achievement and is influenced by the perceived ability of the individual to benefit from the program and to contribute to life at Cambridge.
