Six students were awarded Tanner Fellowships for 2008, encouraging 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 was first awarded in 1995; to date, 48 have been awarded. It was created by the friends and family of Tanner Cornwell, late son of Grant '79 and Peg Cornwell '79, to honor the memory of Tanner, whose short but extraordinary life touched many people. The Fellowship carries a stipend of $2,500 and projects must be completed by March of the year following the time of the award. Fellows give campus presentations on their projects.
