CS graduate student, Abhilash Kantamneni, recently was accepted to the 2016 Byron Fellowship. Kantamneni, advised by Dr. Laura Brown (CS) and nominated by Dr. Joshua Pearce (EE/Materials Science), will participate in the Fellowship this summer.
The Byron Fellowship is a transformational experience and community of generative leaders co-creating a flourishing world. Our program empowers the next generation of emerging leaders to engage their unique abilities in leading generative efforts within their own communities.
Each year, 20 exceptional fellows travel to Warren Wilson College near Asheville, North Carolina to learn alongside a collection of academic teachers and active practitioners, representing a wide spectrum of disciplines including the arts, natural science, social science, engineering, business, philosophy, and theology. The teaching methods include mindfulness exercises, collaborative dialogue, envisioning practices, deep individual and group reflection. Byron fellows represent a diverse group entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and social entrepreneurs who are both making a profound difference in their own communities and keenly attuned to the challenges we share globally.
