Senior Megg Ward has received the Mary Churchill Humphrey Memorial Scholarship, a prize for ongoing, interdisciplinary studies in the United Kingdom or Ireland. Ward will spend the 2015-2016 academic year at University of Birmingham in England, studying Shakespeare and Renaissance drama.

The Mary Churchill Humphrey Memorial Scholarship goes to academically distinguished College of Arts and Sciences seniors, graduate students and recent graduates.
