University School's Strnad Fellowship Program was established by Mr. and Mrs. James J. Strnad in 1968 to stimulate and recognize creative inquiry. The program enables juniors and seniors with an outstanding ability and passionate interest in a particular area to pursue advanced independent projects. Students have worked in biomedical engineering, medical research, and built a hydroelectric generator. They have designed furniture, created jewelry, composed music, produced films, and pursued countless other projects.
A microsite has been created to archive and tell the story of the Strnad Fellowship and it's lasting impact on the students who undertake these projects.
