The Strnad Fellowship at University School

Brainchild of Mr. James J. Strnad, class of 1942, the Strnad Fellowships in Science were established at University School in October, 1968. Originally intended to stimulate and recognize independent creative research in science well beyond the curriculum, the fellowships were extended in scope in the fall of 1981 to embrace advanced creative inquiry not just in science, but in all fields of intellectual endeavor. 

The Archive

All 679 Strnad Projects are currently being organized and uploaded to this website. Over the next three years, University School will be establishing a digital archive of every Strnad fellowship since 1968. To view a temporary page, please see the link below.
