Alumnus awarded Phi Kappa Phi fellowship

Caleb Lareau (BS ’15) has received the Walter and Adelheid Hohenstein Fellowship from Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. In recognition of his research and service, Lareau was one of only six students nationwide to earn the Hohenstein distinction. A total of 57 fellowships are awarded each year to students entering their first year of graduate or professional study.

Lareau received his bachelor’s degree from TU in May with a double major in biochemistry and mathematics. Earlier this spring, he was honored with a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Lareau is a 2014 Goldwater Scholar and a past intern at the Max Planch Institute for Psychiatry in Munich, Germany.

At TU, he served as a university ambassador, Student Association officer and Service Day coordinator. He also recruited more than 200 donors to the national bone marrow registry for his TU NOVA Fellow capstone service project.

Lareau currently is conducting summer research at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation in Oklahoma City before beginning a doctoral program in biostatistics at Harvard University this fall.
