Sussex awards fellowships to distinguished members of faculty
Among the final celebrations of its 50th anniversary this year, Sussex is awarding fellowships to people associated with the University who have made a distinguished contribution in any field or activity since its foundation in 1961.
Recipients include science writer Dr John Gribbin, Visiting Research Fellow in Astronomy and Associate Tutor and Emeritus Professor Michael Pendlebury.
Nominations were invited from students, staff, alumni and friends of the University.
The recipients were selected by a committee made up of current staff and independent members of Council (the University’s governing body).
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Michael Farthing, chaired the committee. He said: “We had many excellent suggestions and were impressed with the range and quality of those put forward for fellowships. The final selection was very tough.
“We are extremely proud to recognise the distinguished contributions in their field by this group of individuals and to bestow fellowships upon them during our 50th anniversary year.”
