This month, we are excited to welcome Brit Chase to fellowships advising at UVM; she will be working with me (Lisa Schnell) to advise students across the campus in national fellowship and scholarship competitions. After graduation from Hamilton College and then from Columbia University (with a Masters in Journalism), Brit worked as a journalist before becoming the Director of New Media for Oregon congressman, Earl Blumenauer. So along with her tremendous energy, Brit also brings valuable skills in writing and communications, both of which she will put to good use in working with students on their applications for prestigious fellowships like the Fulbright, Truman, Udall, and Boren (among others).
Brit will be just down the hall from the Honors College offices, in 17A U-Heights North (just beside the games room on the main floor).
We’re thrilled to have her as part of the Honors College team!
