Grants and fellowships awarded

Several Holy Cross students won prestigious grants and fellowships this past spring, including three recent graduates who were awarded Fulbright Fellowships.

Evan K. McCarthy ’02 (Aurora, Ohio), and Aidyn L. Mancenido ’02 (Danbury, Conn.), received Fulbright Research Fellowships to study political science in Estonia (McCarthy), and anthropology in Spain (Mancenido). Katherine E. Rork ’02 (Londonderry, N.H.), will be in Korea next year supported by a Fulbright Teaching Fellowship.

Teaching assistantships in France were awarded to Patricia D. Warin ’02 (Arlington, Va.), Kelly E. Holmes ’02 (Chicago, Ill.), Andrea M. Dooley ’02 (New York, N.Y.), and Angela M. Archambault ’02 (Whitinsville, Mass.). Michael P. Cassaro ’02 (Garden City, N.Y.), and Alexandra D. Williams ’02 (Valley Stream, N.Y.) will teach in Austria.

Two students received nationally competitive fellowships from the Thomas J. Watson Foundation. William J. Currano ’02 (Clarksville, Md.) will travel to Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland to investigate melodic metal rock music. Brett W. Maguire ’02 (Amherst, N.H.) will travel to France, England and Canada to study the tradition of the blind organist. Laura del Pilar Peynado Castro ’02 (Clinton, Mass.) was named an alternate. Their accomplishments are exceptional given that only 60 awards are given annually, and only five alternates are named.

Jonathan E. Favreau ’03 (North Reading, Mass.) was awarded a Truman Scholarship for graduate study in public policy. Andrew B. DesRault ’03 (North Massapequa, N.Y.) was a finalist for the award.

Julia D. Madden ’02 (Blue Bell, Pa.) will study musicology at Cornell University with support from a Mellon Scholarship.
