Laila Ujayli Named Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellow

L Ujayli Headshot.jpgSenior honors student, honors collegium member, and Morrill Scholar Laila Ujayli has been named a Fall 2018 Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellow. Ujayli, a double-major in International Relations and English with minors in Creative Writing and Business, will work in D.C. as a fellow on a project related to international peace and security. A small group of Scoville fellows are chosen twice yearly from a competitive applicant pool. Fellows receive a competitive salary as they partner with organizations like the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the Brookings Institution, and the Truman Center for National Policy, among others. In addition to a stellar academic record, sustained interest in international peace, and a well-crafted policy essay, fellows must successfully interview and match with a partnering organization. Anywhere between three and ten recent graduates are named Scoville fellows each year. Ohio State students interested in applying for the Scoville fellowship or other nationally competitive awards should contact Corey Efron at fellowships@osu.edu.
