Senior Fellowships were established in 1929 by President Ernest Martin Hopkins as a program for seniors to work independently on a project of their own design. Fellows are not required to enroll in courses during their senior year and are not required to complete a major. The Paul Room in Baker Library is reserved for the use of Senior Fellows, as it has been since 1939. The program is funded by a generous endowment from the Kaminsky Family Fund (Gerald Kaminsky ’61 was a Senior Fellow). Past Senior Fellows also include Nelson Rockefeller ’30, the 41st U.S. Vice President and former Governor of New York, and Peter Tse ’84, associate professor of psychological and brain sciences.
