    Wentworth Scholar Showcase

    Meet the Scholars in person Wednesday, April 16, 2-4 pm

    The Wentworth Fellowship, a gift of Mr. Charles F. Green III, was established in 2001 to enable a select number of students to travel to sites, in America or abroad, associated with literary authors and texts. This year's recipients traveled to places as far as Japan and Argentina.

    Please also stop by the Randall Library information table at 3 pm to learn about how Randall Library can provide support and assistance to you when you embark on a research project.

    Meet the Scholars in our digital gallery

    Gallery includes bios of the scholars, student written profiles of the scholars, and various photographs from recent trips. The Wentworth Scholar Digital Gallery can be viewed here.

    Special thanks to English Faculty member, and Wentworth Fellowship committee chair, Michelle Britt, and Kimi Faxon Hemingway and her journalism students.
