Thouron awards

Eight outstanding students from this side of the Atlantic will be studying in England, come the fall, as Thouron Fellows.

The prestigious exchange program allows exceptional U.S. and British students to immerse themselves in the culture and the thinking of another country. The students were selected for qualities — academic excellence, leadership and personal abilities — that would lead them and their home countries to benefit from the exchange.
