    This year, University graduate and undergraduate students have garnered numerous scholarships, grants and fellowships for their academic achievements as well as their accomplishments in athletics, community service and extracurricular activities.

    In the competitions for the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation’s undergraduate awards and the Fulbright Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad fellowships, Chicago students have led the nation. With three third-years in the College receiving Truman scholarships, the University had more recipients than any other institution in the country for 2007.

    This year, as in many previous years, the University has the highest percentage (44 percent) of winners to applicants in the Fulbright Hays DDRA fellowship competition, with 12 out of 27 applicants receiving them. Two graduate students also are alternates.

    Students also have received honors from many other national and international institutions, including the Academy of Arts & Sciences and the German Academic Exchange, and from Chicago’s own grant and scholarship programs such as the Stuart Tave Teaching fellowship and the William Rainey Harper Dissertation fellowship.
