Purchase College Students Chosen for SUNY’s Thayer Fellowship and Patricia Kerr Ross Award

Thayer Kerr-Ross awards

Purchase College is proud to announce that two of its 2014 graduates received SUNY-wide awards for achievement in arts.

Madeline Mondrala ’14 (music) will receive $4,000 from the Thayer Fellowship and Gina Mingione ’14 (creative writing and literature) will receive the $1,000 Patricia Kerr Ross Award.

A Thayer Fellowship in the amount of $7,000 is awarded to one student, or shared among several students, who demonstrate outstanding achievement and high professional potential in the arts.

The Patricia Kerr Ross Award, for $1,000, is given to a student, or shared among several students, who have demonstrated excellence, originality, and promise in the arts.

Both awards are intended as a bridge between SUNY study in the arts and entry into a professional career in the arts.
