The Silverstein Fellowship is named after the late Dr. Joseph Silverstein who earned his B.A. (1930) and his M.A. (1932) from The University of Alabama. As part of his will, a bequest was made to the University in 1998 and an endowment was established in his name. From this endowment, we annually award Silverstein Fellowships to some of our students.

As of the Fall of 2007, the department distinguished what was formerly known as the Silverstein Scholarship from the Silverstein Fellowship — the latter being awarded to students to assist with funding their education through working as assistants in the department (such as 2007-8’s group, at right). Apart from assisting in the main office and helping professors with their research projects, some Silverstein Fellows also assist the Department to produce videos, posters, and manage this very site.
