Senior Mary DeVellis awarded Gates Cambridge Scholarship

Feb. 16, 2021

Congratulations to anthropology major Mary DeVellis ’21, awarded the Gates Cambridge Scholarship. The award gives students the opportunity to pursue postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge. DeVellis will use the Scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in health, medicine and society in order to understand the social factors of health and wellbeing in different cultural contexts. Her research will focus on access to sexual health education for people with disabilities, both in the Cambridge community and internationally.

Elizabeth Armstrong, associate professor of sociology and public affairs, called DeVellis a “brilliant young woman whose prodigious intellect is well-matched by her capacious heart and her determined spirit.” 

DeVellis hopes to become a women’s health specialist and plans to attend medical school after earning a master’s at Cambridge.
