Jolly Good Fellows
Last spring, three students were named to well-endowed fellowships for graduate school or study abroad. These highly prestigious fellowships have rarely or never before been awarded to Kenyon applicants.
Shrochis Karki '09, awarded the Jack Kent Cooke fellowship for graduate study. The award is worth up to $50,000 per year for as many as six years of graduate school. Karki, who double-majored in international studies and political science, will pursue a master's degree in development studies at Oxford University in England, where he previously studied during his junior year abroad. Karki is the first Kenyon recipient of the award.
Janae Peters '10, the winner of a Beinecke fellowship for graduate study. Peters, an English major, will receive $4,000 during her senior year, and $30,000 more to offset the cost of graduate school. Peters is the first Kenyon student to win a Beinecke since the year 2000.
Shaakira Raheem '11, an international studies major, the first-ever Kenyon recipient of a Boren National Security Education Program scholarship for study abroad. Valued at up to $20,000, the scholarship will allow Raheem to study during her junior year in Rabat, Morocco.
