Danielle Robinette

McConnell Scholar Danielle Robinette ('15) was selected as the 2015 recipient of the Paul J. Weber Mentoring Fellowship Award. The scholarship is a tribute to Paul Weber, PhD, the founding director of the McConnell Center and a longtime member of the political science department at the University of Louisville.

Robinette will use the $5,000 financial scholarship as she pursues a master's degree in teaching from UofL in the fall. She has also been selected to participate in Teach Kentucky, an organization that recruits highly-motivated young adults to teach in public schools.

Established in Dec. 2005, the Paul J. Weber Fellowship for Mentoring Excellence seeks to provide graduate scholarships in law, education or public policy to students who demonstrate a strong commitment to mentoring. It is a competitive scholarship limited to McConnell Scholars and UofL political science majors pursuing graduate education at UofL.

During his 30-year career at UofL, Weber influenced countless students as a mentor, scholar and award-winning teacher. He was known for his dedication to people and his positive effect on the lives of both students and colleagues.
