Ph.D. candidate (history) James Wall has been awarded the Phelps-Stokes Graduate Fellowship for the 2015-16 academic year. This fellowship was established in 1911 by the authorization of a monetary gift to the University of Georgia from the Phelps-Stokes Fund. The fund was a bequest from the estate of Miss Caroline Phelps Stokes (1854-1909), a New York City philanthropist, for a recipient studying African-Americans and the adjustment to American civilization.
