George Young awarded a Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship
The Fellowship Subcommittee has recommended, and the Faculty Committee on the Graduate School has approved, that George Young be awarded a Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship for the 2012-13 academic year. Established in 1905 by Clara Cooley Jacobus, this fellowship is an honorific award reserved for four students who, in the judgment of the University faculty, demonstrate the highest scholarly excellence. The Jacobus Fellowship consists of full tuition and student health plan fees and a taxable stipend distributed over 12 months. Honorific fellowships recognize outstanding performance and professional promise, and represent high commendation from the Princeton University Graduate School. The stipend is intended to be sufficient to release Graduate Students from other obligations so that they may complete their dissertation.
