Weinberg senior and Wildcats cross-country runner Elena Barham '16 will serve as a junior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace beginning in August.

The endowment offers about a dozen fellowships each year, choosing from a pool of nominees from almost 400 colleges and universities. Barham, who is majoring in political science and philosophy, is the first Northwestern student to earn a Carnegie Fellowship since 2001. She will work as a research assistant in the Carnegie Fellowship's Rule of Law program, reporting to experts in foreign policy.
