Heled Grant winner: Kristen Kelly

We are very pleased to announce that Kristen Kelly has won the Terry B. Heled Travel & Research Grant at the Kelly Writers House.  This year, we received dozens of fine applications for this award. Kristen (C'16) is majoring in Urban Studies and English. 

Supported financially by this grant, Kristen will travel to San Francisco and Seattle to research the history of Asian immigration (including its familial/personal impacts) into the US.  She will present her writing, the result of this research, next fall at the Kelly Writers House.

As a way of remembering her mother, Terry B. Heled - and of honoring the students of her alma mater in gratitude for the encouragement her own research and writing received while she was at Penn - Mali Heled Kinberg (C'95) has created this endowed fund at the Kelly Writers House that, each summer, enables a student to travel for the purpose of conducting the research leading to a significant writing project.

Congratulations to Kristen! (And many thanks to Mingo Reynolds for once again coordinating the review of applicants and also, of course, to Mali Heled Kinberg for making possible this opportunity for a venturesome Penn student.)
