MANCHESTER, N.H. — Emily Rice, a politics major from Farmington, has been awarded the Saint Anselm College Albert H. Gordon Fellowship for the summer.

The fellowship, awarded by the Academic Advisory Committee of the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, allows a student the opportunity to participate in research and writing tasks critical to the Institute’s mission.

Rice will research and write about two topics that sparked her interest during study abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland: the decline of the Labour Party in Scotland and Wales as well as the resurgence of Scottish Nationalism. She will collaborate with Assistant Professor Erik Cleven, Ph.D., who sponsored her for the summer grant.

The fellowship represents the lifelong commitment of its sponsor, the late Albert H. Gordon, to education and opportunity for Saint Anselm students. The grant is available through a competitive process to students of all majors upon completion of their junior or senior year, and provides a stipend of $3,000 per summer. Those receiving the prestigious appointment are chosen in recognition of leadership and critical thinking skills, a proven commitment to civic education and engagement, and a high degree of intellectual depth and inquisitiveness.
