Three receive Guggenheim Fellowships

Three Princeton faculty members are among the 184 artists, scholars and scientists who received a 2002 Guggenheim Fellowship, an honor that recognizes exceptional achievement and supports promising projects.

Each Guggenheim Fellow will receive a grant to support his or her work. The average grant for 2002 was $36,685.

The Princeton professors and their proposed projects are:

  • Peter Lake, professor of history, for research on "Dynastic Crises, Confessional Politics and Conspiracy Theory in Post-Reformation England."
  • Vincent Poor, professor of electrical engineering, for research on "Quantum Multi-User Communications."
  • Howard Rosenthal, the Roger Williams Straus Professor of Social Sciences and professor of politics, for research on "Empirical Tests of Theories of the Legislative Process."
The Guggenheim Foundation, which awards the fellowships, selected this year's recipients from among more than 2,800 applicants for awards totaling $6,750,000.
