Fifteen students have been awarded fellowships for summer study by
the English Department.
Awarded Summer Fellowships were Kerry Banazek '06, Camillus, NY;
Meredith Bircher '06, Pittsford, NY; Laura Burgess '06, Concord, NH;
Campbell Copeland '06, Cazenovia, NY; Jamie Dyer '06, Presque Isle,
ME; Rachel Henderson '06, Troy, MT; Kelli Holmstrom '07, Bemidji, MN;

NY; Sam Morrow '06, Princeton, NJ; Stefan Patyjewicz '06, Plattsburgh,

Fellowships are awarded, in a competitive process, to sophomores or
juniors who wish to work one-on-one with a faculty member in the
department for eight to 10 weeks during the summer. The fellowship
provides a stipend, plus housing on campus. Fellows meet on a regular
basis with sponsoring faculty members, and are expected to produce a
substantial body of work over the period of the fellowship.
Awarded Vermont Fellowships were Nicole Collen '06, Menands, NY; Caroline
Duda '07, Vernon, CT; and Kendra J. Stasko '06, Mattydale, NY.
Through an arrangement with the Vermont low-residency MFA program, four to
six qualified St. Lawrence University students (sophomores and juniors) may be
awarded the fellowships, to work on writing under the guidance of Vermont
faculty. Vermont Fellows are in residence at St. Lawrence in June, after
which they participate in a 10-day residency with other fellows – graduate
students – in Montpelier. The fellowship provides a stipend, housing on
campus at St. Lawrence, plus expenses (tuition, room, board and a travel
allowance) for the Vermont residency.
