The Lilley Fellowship

Established in fall 2018, the Lilley Fellowship Fund awards fellowships to students who exemplify academic curiosity, intellectual rigor, and scholarly passion. The Fellowship program is overseen by Director of Libraries Lorie Harding, and is modeled after Yale University's Scholars of the House program that ran from 1945-1995.

The Lilley Fellowship Program offers two research opportunities available to Upper School students: the traditional Fellowship and the Advanced Independent Study. Learn more or download the applications below.
