Third-year LMH Economics & Management undergraduate Daniel Hoos has been awarded the prestigious Michael von Clemm Fellowship, which will see him spend a year as a Special Student at Harvard University

The Michael von Clemm Fellowship is highly competitive, with only a single Oxford student or recent alumnus selected annually to receive a fully-funded year of study. The Fellowship is named in memory of Michael von Clemm (1935-97), who was a graduate of Harvard and a graduate student (and later an Honorary Fellow) of Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

A more unusual aspect of the Fellowship, and one of the things that prompted Daniel to apply, is that it encourages the holder to explore subject areas that they may not have studied before. During his year at Harvard, Daniel hopes to focus on business economics and public policy and to explore courses on organisational behaviour. Alongside his academic work, Daniel is looking forward to getting involved in life at Harvard more broadly. A keen sportsman, Daniel was captain of both LMH’s football and cricket teams last year, and he hopes to play some football (or rather soccer) during his year in Boston.

Looking forward to next year, Daniel said of the Fellowship: “I feel very excited for the year ahead and grateful to both the von Clemm Foundation and Corpus Christi College for providing me with this opportunity. I’m also grateful to LMH and my tutors here for their help with the application and in general for their support over the last 3 years. I’m really looking forward to learning in a completely new environment at a world-renowned university, and meeting new people from across the globe.”
