Sarah McCarty '16 has been named one of three winners of a Mortimer Hays-Brandeis Traveling Fellowship.

The fellowship provides $19,000 to students in the visual and fine arts for travel and living expenses outside the United States. With the support of the fellowship, McCarty will live in Germany and conduct field and historical research in supremacy ideology. This research will lead to the creation of video works, writing, and collaborative community gatherings.
”Sarah has the ability to gain knowledge from a wide range of research perspectives,” said Tory Fair, associate professor of sculpture. “The fellowship will allow Sarah to continue to grow as a practicing artist and as a citizen who is expressing comprehensive concerns in our human and global environment.”

Funded by the Mortimer and Sara Hays Endowment, Mortimer Hays-Brandeis Traveling Fellowships are highly competitive and open to recent graduates of Brandeis, Boston University, The City College of New York/CUNY, Columbia University, Connecticut College, Gallaudet University, Harvard University, Rochester Institute of Technology/NTID, Wesleyan University and Yale University.
