University Announces 4 Rockefeller Awards
Three Harvard seniors and a Radcliffe senior have been awarded Michael Clark Rockefeller Fellowships for foreign travel and study during 1969-70.
The recipients are Alexander Keyssar, Frances Pritchett, Wesley E. Profit, and Charles F. Sabel, according to Eugene Kinasewich '64, assistant dean of the College. They were selected from among 40 applicants by a board composed of members of the Harvard Faculty and friends of the Rockefeller family.
The award includes a stipend of $4500 to be used for independent study in countries chosen by the recipients. It was established in memory of Michael C. Rockefeller '60, who was killed in 1961 on an anthropological expedition to New Guinea.
Keyssar, an English major in Kirkland House, will use the grant for writing and studying in peasant villages in Spain. He plans to write poetry and a play.
Miss Pritchett, a Philosophy and English Major, will study birth control programs in India. She has participated in community action programs on Boston's South Side, and is currently working with the Experimental Learning Center there.
Profit, a Social Relations major in Winthrop House, will travel and study in Japan. He is retiring president of Phillips Brooks House.
Sabel plans a study of theatre and cinema in Poland and Germany. A Social Studies major in Eliot House, he is a member of the CRIMSON News Board.
Kinasewich also revealed that five Harvard students have received conditional acceptance for Marshall Scholarships, given by the British government for study at English universities.
The scholarships will not be confirmed until the applicants are accepted by an English university. The number of Harvard students receiving Marshalls is above the average, Kinasewich noted. Only ten Marshalls have been awarded to Harvard students in the past five years.
Kinasewich said in addition that the Lionel de Jersey and Charles Henry Fiske III scholarships, each of which offers a year at Cambridge University to a Harvard student, will be awarded on Saturday
