Letter: The Zucconi Fellowship lives on

To the Editor:

I appreciated The Herald's recent coverage about the Zucconi Fellowship and its value for many graduates of Brown ("Fellowship suspended due to lack of funds," Oct. 1). The article reported that the Zucconi would not be offered this year. I am writing to let you know that we have very good news: Brown's Advancement Division is planning to raise enough current-use gifts to cover one Zucconi Fellowship in 2010, and another in 2011. And they will continue to seek gifts to endow the Fellowship in perpetuity.

I wanted not only to inform readers about this very important development, but also to take the opportunity to thank Ronald Vanden Dorpel, and all the staff in the Advancement Division, for supporting the excellence of the Brown undergraduate experience.

Katherine Bergeron
Dean of the College
