The Mary Malcomson Raphael Fellowship is for graduate women students in a humanities or social science field within the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. The Fellowship is intended as an award of high distinction and is presented to women held in the highest esteem by their faculty. It is provided through an endowment established by the late Margaret Earhart Smith in recognition of Ms.Raphael, who, by personality and action, “evoked power in people above and beyond their ordinary capacity.” The intent of the donor is that the Fellowship provide for tuition and essential living expenses without sacrifice of the fellow’s time, such as through employment.

Congratulations to Elizabeth Armstrong on receiving this Fellowship!
