Burchard Scholars named for 2013


March 10, 2013 — MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences has named 32 undergraduate students as Burchard Scholars for 2013. The award recognizes sophomores and juniors who have demonstrated outstanding abilities and academic excellence in some aspect of the humanities, arts, and social sciences, as well as in science and engineering.

“Scholars are chosen for the love of abstract thinking across a variety of fields, the pleasure in dialogue with peers and faculty, and the desire to understand the passion that inspires MIT research in the humanities, arts, and social sciences,” says Margery Resnick, professor of literature and director of the Burchard Scholars Program.
