Hoover Institution announces national fellows for 1992-93 academic year

STANFORD -- Twelve scholars have won the Hoover Institution's annual postdoctoral National and Peace Fellowships for the 1992-93 academic year.

The fellowships provide scholars with an opportunity to spend one year at the Hoover Institution to conduct independent research on historical and public policy issues of the 20th century.

"The program serves as an annual injection of intellectual vitality to our ongoing scholarship," Hoover Director John Raisian said.

The program, recognized as one of the most distinguished fellowship programs in the United States, has awarded more than 280 fellowships to scholars from universities in the United States and Canada. Stanford University faculty members have received more than 10 percent of the awards since the program's inception in 1971.
