Hoover announces National Fellows for 1991-92
STANFORD -- Hoover Institution Director John Raisian on Wednesday, May 1,
announced the awarding of 12 postdoctoral National and Peace Fellowships by
the Institution for the 1991-92 academic year.
Entering its 20th year, the National Fellows Program continues to be
nationally recognized as one of the most distinguished fellowship programs in
the United States. More than 240 outstanding scholars from universities in
the United States and Canada have been selected for the honor, with Stanford
University faculty members having received more than 10 percent of the
awards. The fellowships provide scholars with a unique opportunity to spend
one year at the Hoover Institution to conduct independent work on research
projects and public policy issues.
Hoover Associate Director Thomas H. Henriksen, who serves as the Program's
Executive Secretary, said, "Scholars who were awarded fellowships this year
typify the exceptional range of talent and academic excellence that have come
to be associated with the National Fellows.
"We believe that as a result of this program, the scholars -- and
ultimately the public -- will benefit from the knowledge they gain in
understanding major domestic and foreign policy issues," Henriksen said.
