On October 13, President Gregory L. Fenves, along with Provost Maurie McInnis and other university faculty and staff, welcomed the 2016-17 Harrington Fellows to UT Austin with a special reception held in the President’s Office.
UT Austin is privileged to be the home of the distinguished Harrington Fellows Program which supports both Faculty and Graduate Fellows each year. Fellowships are awarded annually to the most highly qualified applicants from universities throughout the United States and around the world.
“The fellows this year are truly remarkable,” said Del Watson, Harrington Fellows Program coordinator. “They are some of the best scholars in the world and we are honored to have them conduct their research at UT Austin.”
All Harrington Faculty and Graduate Fellows become lifetime members of the Harrington Society. This organization is designed to build a sense of community among the scholars through special programs and events that include seminars, receptions and monthly informal luncheons.
The Donald D. Harrington Fellows Program was created by Sybil Harrington as a tribute to her late husband. She envisioned a program that would support gifted and ambitious scholars, who would, in turn, share their knowledge and success with future generations.
