Congratulations to Italian major and Italian Club President Mark D'Alesio, who has been named one of only 15 national Leadership Council Fellows by the National Italian American Foundation. Mark will travel to Washington, D.C. during NIAF's Gala Weekend (12-14 October) to participate in the first meeting of the Fellows; all of Mark's expenses for the weekend are paid by NIAF. The Fellows are described in the following way on NIAF's site: "The Program is intended for future leaders who self-identify as active in the Italian American community through their choice of study, their participation in the Italian Club, and their grass root efforts. The ideal candidate is active in Italian or Italian American issues or studies at their college or university."

Congratulations to French & Italian double major Zachary Enick, who has been awarded a Fall 2018 THINK Fellowship (formerly Fall Brackenridge/Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Research Fellowships). This award comes in recognition of Zac's research project, on the use of Anglicisms in the archived minutes of an early-20th c. Italian beneficial society. 

Todd Reeser, Professor of French and Director of the GSWS Program, has been awarded a ten-month senior residential fellowship in AY2019 in Lyon, France under the auspices of the EURIAS to conduct archival research on his ongoing "Transgender France" book project, and become part of a research team at the Max Weber Center. His research community in Lyon is focused on the subcategory of "Sexualités, couples, identités."
