Federica Clementi Appointed a McCausland Fellow

Dr. Clementi, Associate Professor of English, has been appointed a Peter and Bonnie McCausland Fellow of English Language and Literature!

The fellowships are funded by a $10 million endowment – a gift from USC alumnus Peter McCausland (’71), chairman and chief executive officer of Pennsylvania-based Airgas Inc., and his wife, Bonnie. The fellowships reward young faculty members in the College of Arts and Sciences for excellence in teaching and research. 

The endowment is also being used to create a visiting scholars program and encourage other imaginative teaching and research projects. Bestowed by the College of Arts and Sciences, with the approval of the Provost, this is a high honor indeed and testifies to Federica’s outstanding scholarship and teaching.
