Herbert Lee Stetson Graduate Fellowship

Former Kalamazoo College president Herbert Lee Stetson, in his will, provided an endowment
for a fellowship: “to be given to Kalamazoo College for a graduate of the institution to pursue
work at one of the following universities: Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins, or [University of]
Chicago, or at a European university.” The fellowship is not to be used towards professional
study (i.e. MD, JD, MDiv) except for education.

The fund allows for the award of an approximately $1,000 non-renewable fellowship.
