Maddy, a junior double-majoring in English with a creative writing concentration and comparative literature, and minoring in French and psychology, is this year’s recipient of the Internal Wells Scholarship. Fully immersed in the literary scene on campus, she is active with the Indiana University Journal of Undergraduate Research, the Indiana Daily Student, and the Victorian Studies journal. Maddy is looking forward to spending the next two years honing in on specializations within her current degree programs. She spent this summer pursuing an internship in London, England, and she hopes to travel to France and put her minor to good use! You’ll be able to identify her by her trademark five rings when she reaches out to shake your hand. Maddy would like to thank her family, especially her parents, for giving her so much love and support; Professor Sarah Van der Laan for the scholarship nomination and continuing close mentorship; and Dr. David Price for inspiring her to start studying literature.

Maddy will hold the Bernardo Mendel scholarship.
