Paterno Fellows Best Thesis Awards

Every year, the Paterno Fellows Program presents two Best Thesis Awards: one for a thesis in the social sciences and the other for a thesis in any field of the humanities. Each prize carries a $500 award. A faculty panel makes the selections based on the originality of the project, the rigor of the research, and the clarity of presentation. Students must have met all PFP graduation requirements to be eligible.

Congratulations to this year's winners, Hope Bodenschatz and Anna Zuckerman!

 2021 Best Thesis in the Social Sciences, “Pushing the Boundaries: The Impact of School Attendance Zone Boundaries on School Segregation in Montgomery County Public Schools”, Hope Bodenschatz, Economics, Geography, Political Science, and Master of Arts in Economics

 2021 Best Thesis in the Humanities, “Who We Believe Her To Be: A Contextualization of Pope Gregory the Great’s Statements on the Magdalene Figure, 591CE–604CE”, Anna Zuckerman, Global and International Studies and History

This information was produced on April 2, 2021 as an unofficial list of students who indicated their intent to graduate spring semester 2021. Any changes after that date will not be reflected here.
