Thomas, who is also director of DePauw's new computing center, received his initial fellowship from Danforth in February 1961 and studied at the University of Illinois.

The fellowships carry a stipend of $4,800, plus tuition and fees.  They are awarded on the basis of teaching ability and a commitment to the advancement and study of religious values.

The 33-year-old Thomas joined the DePauw faculty in 1958.  He holds the A.B. from Oberlin and the M.S. from both Indiana University and the University of Illinois.
