Hans Hanley, valedictorian of Montverde Academy’s Class of 2014, has been named a finalist for the 2018 Hertz Fellowship in applied science, math and engineering. We are so proud of this brilliant young man as he continues to achieve tremendous success in all of his academic endeavors.
The Fellowship is a prestigious honor which awards up to five years of academic fiscal support, valued at $250,000, and provides research freedom at a participating graduate institution in the United States. He is one of 40 finalists selected from the nearly 700 applications received; of that approximately 12 applicants will be awarded the grant. Hans is completing his degree in electrical engineering with a concentration in information security and pursuing a minor in the applications of computing and robotics and intelligent systems at Princeton University.
In December 2107, Hans was named one of the University of Oxford's Sach Scholars. The Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship is one of Princeton University’s highest awards, given to those who best exemplify Sachs’ character, intelligence and commitment, and whose scholarship is most likely to benefit the public. At Oxford, he plans to pursue a master’s degree in mathematics and foundations of computer science and a master’s in computer science, which he will apply toward a career in academic research and cybertechnology policy.
