Washington College said Friday that Ellen Dalina of Perry Hall, a member of its class of 2013, has completed her work as a Comegys Bight Fellow.
Presented by the college's C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience, the Comegys Bight Fellowship Program offers stipends to support summer internships at some of the nation's leading historical and cultural institutions. These paid internships annually provide a handful of students with high-level research experience on topics related to American history pre-1900.
Over the summer, Ms. Dalina worked at the Maryland Historical Society. There, she and another fellow wrote a script for an audio tour that will be implemented in the Historical Society's War of 1812 exhibit. Ms. Dalina presented her work at a special program on campus on October 15.
Ms. Dalina is a double-major in English and history, with a minor in religion. She is president of Phi Alpha Theta and active in Sigma Tau Delta, as well as EROS and the Philosophy Club. Ms. Dalina is also a recipient of the Starr Center's Quill and Compass Scholarship and a Presidential Fellow.
She graduated from Notre Dame Preparatory School.
Founded in 1782 under the patronage of George Washington, Washington College is a private, independent college of liberal arts and sciences located in colonial Chestertown on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
