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.
