Princeton inaugurates Society of Fellows

June 7, 2000 9:31 a.m.

This fall, Princeton University will inaugurate the Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, a program designed to bring to campus some of the best recent Ph.D. recipients in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. Six postdoctoral scholars have been named.

The Society will give the postdoctoral scholars an opportunity to enhance their research and teaching while bringing to Princeton an infusion of fresh ideas and interdisciplinary approaches. Together with the Society's Senior Fellows, a group of Princeton professors, the postdoctoral scholars will create a center aimed at fostering a closer exchange among undergraduates, graduate students and faculty.

Ultimately the Society will have 18-24 postdoctoral Fellows appointed for three-year terms.
