WW Fellows win Fellowships and Honors

In April, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation awarded 168 Fellowships for their 2019 class. Of these scholars, artists, and writers, eight are Fellows from various Woodrow Wilson Foundation programs. The Guggenheim Foundation calls these fellows the “best of the best.”

Woodrow Wilson Fellows awarded Guggenheim Fellowships in 2019:

  • Hester Blum MN ‘95

  • Agnes Callard MN ‘97
  • Marjorie Garber WF ‘66

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences has also elected its new members for this year. The 2019 class recognizes 200 individuals doing outstanding work in academia, the arts, business, government, and public affairs. Among the new members are three Fellows from the larger WW network:

  • Mary Louise Pratt WF ’70
  • Paul E. Turner CEF ‘04

Changing the name of the Foundation

The Board of Trustees of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has voted unanimously to rename the organization and to remove Woodrow Wilson from its name; a new name will be announced by early fall.
