Larchmont's Edward Poneman Awarded Student Fellowship

LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Edward Poneman, a Larchmont resident, was recently awarded a Bates College Phillips Student Fellowship in the amount of $6,000 to support a summer-long research project.

Made possible through the generous bequest of Charles F. Phillips, the fourth president of Bates, and his wife, Evelyn M. Phillips, Phillips Student Fellowships provide Bates students with an immersive experience in another culture, as well as opportunities for extensive research, service learning, volunteer work or career exploration. The grants are awarded by Bates through a highly competitive application process.

Through his fellowship, Poneman will work with fellow Bates student Barbara Crespo and Professor Patricia Buck over the course of eight weeks to collect a series of personal memoirs from 10 refugee scholars through a collaboration at Addis Ababa University. The intent of their joint project is to shed light on how the conflict in Somalia dramatically impacted these scholars' lives, their journey to high academic achievement and their powerful engagement in Addis.

Poneman is majoring in politics and art and visual culture at Bates.
