Seven at UC Berkeley awarded 2017 Guggenheim Fellowships, most of any university

April 12, 2017

Seven UC Berkeley faculty are among the 2017 recipients of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowships, a diverse and gifted group who were chosen on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise.

Altogether, the foundation awarded fellowships to 173 scholars, artists and scientists, and this year Berkeley led the program with the most fellows on any one campus awarded the honor. The awards help recipients pursue a special project for six to 12 months. The award is intended for men and women who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.
