Congratulations to all of this year’s winners of national scholarships, fellowships and grants! Grinnellians secured three Watson fellowships, a Davis Project for Peace award, two Barry Goldwater scholarships, and seven Fulbright grants, for a total of 13 awards. These winners continue the long-standing tradition of Grinnell students securing prestigious awards to support their studies.
What began as a course commemorating the bicentennial of the French Revolution evolved into a 20-year friendship.
Grinnell College's Frances Leslie '10 was named to the honorable mention list of the 2009 National Soccer Coaches Association of America Scholar All-Central Region Women's Team.
The forward also helped the Pioneer women claim the 2009 Team Academic Award from the NSCAA. Leslie led the Pioneers in goals in 2009, including a four-goal performance against Illinois College that was just one shy of the school record.
Grinnell's men had two honorees on the All-North Central/Region Team, as JP Prouty '10 was named to the first team and Alex Exarhos '10 the second team.
