Four Susquehanna University students have been named Stanford University Innovation Fellows.
They are among 358 students from 96 higher education institutions in 16 countries to earn the honor.
The local students chosen are Leah Cieniawa, a junior communications major from Bensalem; Joseph Morante, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Kyle Williams, of Wilkes-Barre, both sophomore finance majors, and Brianna Murphy, a sophomore creative writing major from Manchester, Md.
This is the third group of Susquehanna students named to the University Innovation Fellows program.
Stanford University’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design runs the program which has trained more than 1,800 students.
The latest group of Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in one of the program’s two signature events: the Silicon Valley Meetup in California or the Eastern Hemisphere Meetup, which will be held in Dubai. During these gatherings, Fellows take part in immersive experiences at local universities and organizations working with leaders in education and industry.
