Givens Fellowship to open a world of possibilities for students

Beginning next summer, BGSU students might be found trekking in the Amazon, working with Senegalese immigrants in Minnesota or conserving pandas in China—thanks to a newly created fellowship that allows undergraduates to determine the setting for their learning.

BGSU’s Ellen and Dr. Chris Dalton have created the Stuart R. Givens Memorial Fellowship to provide up to two undergraduates a year the funding to pursue a passionate interest in a self-designed experience that would not be possible in a traditional classroom, job or even study abroad.

The goal is that the experience will enrich their lives and be a growth experience, enabling the Fellows to fulfill a longstanding desire.

“The neat thing about it is that it allows people to do something they are passionate about, and not something someone else is telling them to do,” Ellen Dalton said. Administered by Dr. Donald Nieman, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the fellowship is open to students in any major, as the Daltons established it.
