The Awards and Recognition Committee of Theta Alpha Kappa is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Graduate Fellowship Award. These awards support students in the academic study of religion and theology who are pursuing master’s or PhD-level graduate programs in religious studies and theology. The awards support TAK’s mission: “to encourage, recognize, and maintain excellence” in “academic studies in Religion and Theology.”
The first-place fellowship ($3000) is awarded to Jennifer Greenberg, an alumna of Washington University in St. Louis, who is beginning a master’s program at the University of Chicago.
The second-place fellowship ($2000) is awarded to Hannah Thorpe, an alumna of Elon University, who is beginning a master’s program at Emory University.
Two third-place fellowships ($1000 each) are awarded to Skylar Berlin, a Michigan State University alumna, who is beginning a master’s degree at Florida State University; and Fiona Chen, a Fordham University alumna, who is beginning a master’s program at Yale University.
Applicants must be entering the first year of their graduate program. Applicants must have obtained their undergraduate degree within the past three years from an institution with a TAK chapter in which they were inducted as a member. Students may be awarded the TAK Graduate Fellowship only once.
On behalf of TAK’s board, the Awards and Recognition Committee congratulates the winners and thanks all applicants for their applications. We wish all applicants the best in their graduate studies and hope they will continue to be engaged with Theta Alpha Kappa.
