New Fellows

September-October 2010

Harvard Magazine’s Berta Greenwald Ledecky Undergraduate Fellows for the 2010-2011 academic year are Madeleine Schwartz ’12 and Sarah Zhang ’11, who were selected after an evaluation of writing submitted by nearly two dozen student applicants for the two positions. The fellowships are supported by Jonathan J. Ledecky ’79, M.B.A. ’83, and named in honor of his mother; the fellows, who join the editorial staff during the year, contribute to the magazine as “Undergraduate” columnists and initiate story ideas, write news and feature items for print publication and harvardmagazine.com, and help edit copy.

Schwartz, of New York City and Kirkland House, is pursuing a joint concentration in history and the classics. She interned at the New Yorker this summer; in Cambridge, she is an editor for the Harvard Advocate and a writer for the Crimson. Zhang, of Acton, Massachusetts, and Lowell House, is a neurobiology concentrator. She has written for numerous campus publications and is a supervisor of student volunteers at the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter. During the summer, she lived in Cambridge and worked in a neurobiology laboratory while participating in the Program for Research in Science and Engineering, a community of undergraduates pursuing hands-on laboratory experiences.
