Congratulations to recent Ph.D. students Dr. Korie A. Grayson and Johana Uribe inducted as 2020 Fellows into the Cornell chapter of the Edward A. Bouchet Graduate Honor Society. Grayson, a recent Ph.D. graduate (King Lab), and Uribe, a current Ph.D. candidate in the Daniel Labjoin three other Cornell scholars inducted into the society this spring.

The Bouchet Society recognizes outstanding scholarly achievement and promotes diversity and excellence in doctoral education and the professoriate. Its network of scholars exemplifies academic and personal excellence, character, service, and advocacy for students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the academy. Inductees become part of a broader network of scholars at Cornell and across Bouchet member institutions that continue to carry forward the principles of the society throughout their academic and professional lives.

Yale and Howard universities established the Bouchet Society in 2005 to recognize the life and academic contributions of Edward Bouchet, the first African-American to receive a doctorate from a U.S. university; he earned his degree in physics from Yale in 1876.

Congratulations Korie and Johana!
