The John H. Gordon Stipe Society was founded to foster creativity and original scholarship among Emory College students. The Stipe Society is comprised of six appointed scholars each year, one from each area of the creative and performing arts.

2018-2019 Stipe Fellows 

Patsy Collins, Dance
Jard Lerebours, Film & Media
Catherine Macgregor, Music
Josh Oberlander, Theater
Brianka Rainford, Integrated Visual Arts
Austyn Wohlers, Creative Writing 

Stipe Fellows help promote the arts across campus, acting as student artist ambassadors. In addition, fellows are eligible to apply to the Stipe Society to receive funding for personal creative projects to be presented on Emory's campus.

Any former Stipe Fellow still on campus after the term of their one-year fellowship is still a member of the Stipe Society. While these students no longer receive the academic scholarship, they can still apply to the Stipe Society for grants to create art projects on campus.
