When your work is your passion, awards aren’t needed. But they sure are nice!

At CWRU, students are surrounded by winners who love what they do. For example:

  • English professor Michael Clune recently received a 2019 Guggenheim fellowship. He said, “Writing is its own reward...I’m honored to be recognized, but even if I wasn’t, I’d be writing anyway.”
  • Senior Megan Masterson recently won a Gates Cambridge scholarship from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to cover a graduate school in England. She said, “My favorite part of astronomy [is] that the public gets so excited about it.”
  • Economics professor Jenny Hawkins, who has been teaching in CWRU’S Weatherhead School of Management since just 2014, received three top teaching awards this year. She said, “My goal is to guide students to critically and creatively examine their world, then challenge and inspire them to reach a potential they didn't realize they had.”
