St. Lawrence News


Five students have been awarded the Tanner Fellowship for 2007, allowing them to pursue topics of interest and educational opportunities that would not otherwise be possible.

The 2007 Tanner Fellows, and their projects, are:

- Julia Collins '10, West Kingston, RI: The Impacts of El Niño and Tourism on the Indigenous Pinniped Population in the Galápagos Islands

- Craig Conroy '10, Sharon, MA: Mockumentary film on the struggles of young film makers

- John Deschermeier '09, Harbor Springs, MI: The creation of a fly-fishing teaching manual for instructors of the sport for possible inclusion in the St. Lawrence Outdoor Program

- Dipesh Mainali '09, Nepal: China's "Go West" Policy and Nepal

- Matthew Spaulding '08, Huntingtown, MD: A Visual Narrative of Environmental Conservation Efforts on the Chesapeake Bay

The Tanner Fellowship was created by the friends and family of Tanner Cornwell to honor the memory of Cornwell, whose short but extraordinary life touched many people. The award is intended to encourage students to enlarge their capacities to make a positive and creative mark on the world by enabling them to design and pursue educational experiences not otherwise available to them. The Tanner Fellowship carries with it a stipend of $2,500.

Fellowship activities may be carried out during the summer months, January break or an academic semester, but must be completed by March of the year following the award of the fellowship. The project/educational experience may take place anywhere in the U.S. or abroad. "Project/educational experience" may be thought of in very broad terms ranging from a completely independent project to a project working with a faculty mentor to an internship or some other more structured experience. The monetary award may be used to directly support the project/educational experience (such as travel, lodging, etc.) or it may be used to replace summer earnings while the student pursues the particular project/educational experience.

Tanner Fellows give a public oral presentation in March of the year following the award of the fellowship and are expected to submit a permanent record of their fellowship activities.
