Four students enrolled in the Honors Program have been awarded mid-term Foundation Fellowships, UGA’s premier undergraduate scholarship that offers travel, research and internship opportunities. Mid-term fellowships are awarded to academically outstanding sophomores.
The mid-term Foundation Fellows are David Howcroft, a linguistics and mathematics double major from Longwood, Fla.; Connor McCarthy, an international affairs and economics double major from Mobile, Ala.; Sharon McCoy, an international affairs and Spanish double major from Evans; and Cleveland Piggott, a biology and psychology double major from Suwanee.
“We are so pleased to welcome to the Foundation Fellowship a stellar group of young scholars,” said David S. Williams, director of the Honors Program and the Foundation Fellowship. “Their diverse array of interests and talents will enrich the community of Fellows.”
The fellowships provide funding for students’ last two years of study, tuition, student fees and educational enrichment opportunities.
Howcroft plans to spend six weeks each in France and Japan this summer for further language study. McCarthy plans to study in Tanzania this summer through the Institute for Leadership Advancement in UGA’s Terry College of Business. McCoy’s travels have included a mission trip to Jamaica with the Wesley Foundation and a study-abroad trip to Spain with additional trips scheduled for Ecuador and Chile. Piggott has trips planned this summer to Costa Rica and Panama to explore his interests in international medicine and public health.
