Since 2014, the Dietrich Honors Fellowship Program has supported the research and creative projects of 12 fellows who work closely with faculty advisors. Through the fellowship, students immerse themselves in their thesis research the summer before their senior year, and they develop lasting relationships with world-class faculty mentors that enhance their lives both academically and professionally.
Susan Polansky, head of the Department of Modern Languages, is advising fellow Lucy Pei, who is working on a project inspired by a service-learning experience in Pittsburgh. Chloe Thompson, who has a double major in global studies and Hispanic Studies, is also participating in the program.
