Brown Fellows will receive scholarships covering tuition, room and board and will be provided four summer enrichment experiences, beginning the summer before their first year at Centre. The 2009 inaugural class of Brown Fellows will participate in a two-week trip to Panama to study leadership issues surrounding the expansion of the Panama Canal. Summer enrichment experiences in subsequent years will be organized around themes of service, research, international study and leadership.
This group of students has already established an extraordinary record of accomplishment. Their entering test scores place them among the top one percent of all students in the nation. Many of them were members of prestigious honor groups, including: the National Honor Society (one student was president); National Spanish Honor Society; speech and debate teams; and academic teams. This group includes a University of Louisville Book Award winner; a member of the Quick Recall Small School National Champion team; a member of the Speech and Debate State Champion team; a member of the All-Star Debate Team; a First Team Academic All State varsity athlete; a National Latin Exam Award Winner; and a Louisville Youth Orchestra member.
