Bryce Meredig has been awarded a Presidential Fellowship from Northwestern! This is a very prestigious honor, as it represents the most competitive fellowship offered by Northwestern. Here is some text about the award from the NU website:
The Presidential Fellowship is funded by the President of the University and awarded by The Graduate School. This highly competitive award is the most prestigious fellowship awarded by Northwestern.
Presidential Fellows are students who combine outstanding intellectual or creative ability with the capacity to play an active part in the life of the Society of Fellows: distinguished faculty members and previous Presidential Fellows. The Society creates future leaders who embrace and support Northwestern’s broad scholarship. All Presidential Fellows participate in the Society of Fellows functions (except for students not in residence at the time of meetings).
