Celebration of Mellon Research Fellows


On Thursday, May 9, the Mellon Research Fellows students showcased and were celebrated for their remarkable achievements through a display of student posters. This is an end-of-year recognition of the capstone projects from the Mellon Research Fellows, a part of the Pathways to VCU program. The Pathways to VCU program is dedicated to providing seamless pathways and enhanced student support for community college students pursuing arts and humanities programs with the intention to transfer to VCU. Each poster serves as a testament to the dedication, creativity, and scholarly rigor embodied by our students. From exploring the nuances of historical narratives to delving into the depths of artistic expression, these posters encapsulate the diverse array of research endeavors undertaken by our Fellows.  Throughout the academic year, our Fellows have flourished under the guidance of dedicated mentors and faculty members. The Mellon Pathways Program has provided a nurturing environment for intellectual growth and collaboration, fostering interdisciplinary dialogue and encouraging innovative thinking.

Heartfelt gratitude was extended to all those who have contributed to the success of the Mellon Pathways Program – from faculty mentors to program coordinators and, most importantly, the Mellon Research Fellows. Their dedication, passion, and perseverance are admirable. The Mellon Pathways Program stands as a testament to the power of collaboration, mentorship, and academic excellence.
