Fourth Formers Hadley Copeland, Abby Dichter, Annie Morgan, Stefan Reuter, Maddie Vore, Bobby Vogel, Cameron Wenzel, and Justin Wong have been selected as the 2017-18 Heely Scholars.
“All the candidates were particularly strong this year, making the decision a very difficult one,” said History Master Anne Louise Smit, Heely Scholar Director.
The Heely Scholar program is a two week, boarding, summer seminar in archival research for rising Fifth Formers that have demonstrated a keen interest and ability in their study of American History. The program introduces Lawrentians to primary research from the School’s collection and local research institutions. Each year, students consider a particular portion of the collection that allows them to place Lawrenceville within the historic context of national and global events.
In the fall, students begin an Advanced Research Seminar, giving them a chance to expand their summer research into an individual senior thesis while being introduced to the conventions and the discipline of historical writing.
The 2016-17 Heely Scholars researched World War II and Lawrenceville. Click here to find out about their work.

Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
