Congratulations, Bonderman Travel Fellows!

The Honors Program is delighted to announce the selection of the 2020 Bonderman Travel Fellows.

UW students/recent graduates traveling with this $20,000 fellowship set off on journeys that are at least eight months long and take them to at least two regions of the world. While traveling, students may not pursue academic study, projects, or research, per the express wishes of the award’s founder, David Bonderman.

Established at UW in 1995, this fellowship aims to expose students to the intrinsic, often life-changing, benefits of international travel. 

The majority of this year’s undergraduate fellows are also University Honors Program graduates and all of the fellows have conveyed detailed plans for meaningful journeys of cultural exploration and self-discovery. All fellows will be supported through their itineraries when they are safely able to undertake international travel.

The 2020 undergraduate fellows are:

Marco Damien Ammatelli, Art: Painting and Drawing with College Honors

Noah Baker, Biochemistry with Departmental HonorsBoi (Gina) Casillas, Social Work; Comparative History of Ideas

Mason Clugston, Bioengineering with College Honors

Eileen Drolet, Biochemistry; Economics with Interdisciplinary Honors

Katie Hearther, Oceanography; Marine Biology

Anabella King, Communications; Community, Environment, & Planning

Congratulations to these new fellows and to the Graduate School fellows, too! Learn more about the awardees and their travel plans at the Bonderman Fellowship website.
