Johns Hopkins Arts and Sciences magazine caught up with six Krieger School alumni whose careers received a boost from the Woodrow Wilson Research Fellowship.

Tanzania's first herpetologist. A Sherwood Anderson Fiction Award-winning novelist. An advocate for improved access to medical school for students with disabilities.

Each of these alumni — Nicole Angeli, A&S '09, Kristopher Jansma, A&S '03, Peab '03, and Kurt Herzer, A&S '09, respectively — took very different paths after graduating from Hopkins. But they received boosts from the same source: The Woodrow Wilson Research Fellowship. The program, supported by generous annual gifts to The Hopkins Fund, provides grants of up to $10,000 for undergraduates in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences to pursue research projects of their own design with close support from supervising faculty. The Wilson Fellowship has played an important role launching the personal and professional development of more than 100 Hopkins alumni in the past decade.

In its spring 2017 edition, Johns Hopkins Arts & Sciences magazine checked in with Angeli, Jansma, Herzer, and three other alumni of the program. The article shares their stories of impact on fields as diverse as music and law, and in places as close by as East Baltimore and as far away as India.
