"Each student reflects our student community's diverse academic interests and intellectual curiosity," said Lilley Fellow Program Director Max Kelly '06.
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 Lilley Fellows pursue an independent study to create a capstone product while working in a professional setting to develop their expertise and interests.
The Fellowship program is overseen by Upper School history teacher Max Kelly '06, and is modeled after Yale University's Scholars of the House program that ran from 1945-1995. During the program's tenure, selected students worked with a faculty mentor and other Scholars on research and projects outside of their regular course load.
Students in Forms III-VI are eligible to submit an application for consideration. Fellows present their research to the Upper School community each fall.
After months of extensive research, Lilley Fellow Kat Harrar '21 presented her findings about farm-to-feed models to students and teachers.
The goal of Kat's research project is to develop a farm to feed model for EA.
Students wowed their teachers and classmates during their final presentation, the last step in a year-long journey.
