Danforth Fellowships are awarded to students interested in a teaching career who have shown academic and extracurricular excellence and who have a "genuine interest in religion and its relations to teaching."
The Harvard finalists were selected by the Committee on Teaching as a Career from among 30 seniors nominated by their Houses. One hundred winners will be elected from about 300 competitors by national committee.
The Danforth Fellowships provide $1500 year for unmarried graduate students and $2000 yearly for those who are married.
