Through the generous gift in 2008 from Richard and Peggy Notebaert, the Graduate School at the University of Notre Dame created a wide-ranging fellowship initiative, now named the Richard and Peggy Notebaert Premier Fellowships. These awards are given annually on a competitive basis to each year’s top doctoral prospects.
We are extremely proud of our Notebaert Fellows. As of the 2013-14 academic year, six classes of Fellows have been selected, totaling 35 students, and encompassing each of the four divisions within the Graduate School. These outstanding scholars are involved in some of the most promising and important projects being conducted at Notre Dame.
