Six awarded mid-term fellowships

Six undergraduates have been selected as mid-term recipients of the Foundation Fellowship, the university’s most prestigious undergraduate scholarship. Their fellowships will cover the final two years of study, including the full estimated cost of attendance as well as international travel-study grants, academic research and conference grants and numerous other academic enrichment opportunities.

The 2006 Mid-Term Foundation Fellows are: Benjamin Cobb, an economics and international affairs major from Huntsville, Ala.; Adele Handy, a biology and psychology major from Peachtree City; Shannon Hiller, an international affairs and political science major from Blacksburg, Va.; Mindy Lipsitz, a biology, psychology and Spanish major from Birmingham, Ala.; Tyler Pratt, an international affairs and religion major from Evans; and George Vulov, a computer science and mathematics major from Atlanta.

Honors students in their third semester at UGA with a minimum cumulative 3.70 GPA and two years of study remaining are eligible to apply for mid-term fellowships. All six mid-term fellows are Presidential Scholars, having maintained 4.0 GPAs in their classes during a given semester.
