Sergey Feldman Wins Bonderman Travel Fellowship
Congratulations are in order for graduate student Sergey Feldman, student of Maya Gupta, who has been awarded a unique-to-UW 2009 Bonderman Travel Fellowship by the Graduate School.
Bonderman fellows are awarded funding for international travel for eight or more months, to six or more countries in two or more major regions of the world. Through solo travel the Fellows will focus on exploration and discovery, learning about the world and themselves in it (no academic research is allowed during the travel experience!)
Applicants are judged on demonstration of integrity, the capacity for vision and leadership, and potential for humane and effective participation in the global community, as well as initiative, commitment, and creativity. The studentŐs experience as well as curiosity and seriousness of purpose are also considered.
