Andrew Rimby Named Inaugural Recipient of the Guiliano Global Fellowship
Andrew Rimby, a PhD candidate in English, was recently named the inaugural recipient of the Guiliano Global Fellowship, a new program that will provide merit-based grants to creative and curious undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Funded by a generous gift from PhD alumnus Edward Guiliano ’78 and his wife, Mireille Guiliano, the Guiliano Global Fellowship Program supports independent research, scholarly activities and artistic expression projects across the country and around the world.
Rimby, who also holds a graduate certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, will receive the $2,000 fellowship to conduct crucial archival research to complete his dissertation, The Pool of Narcissus: Transatlantic Homoerotic Attachments (1837-1901), an analysis of why American and British nineteenth-century authors used Hellenic allusions to explore male homoerotic desire before homosexuality existed as a category.
Application for the Guiliano Global Fellowship is open to undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences. To learn more about the application process, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission for the next fellowship award is March 15, 2019.
