Inaugurated in 1999, The Edith Hamilton Scholars Program affords Bryn Mawr seniors an opportunity to pursue a unique course of study of particular interest to them while working with a mentor who has expertise relevant to the subject matter. Participation in the program is open to all rising seniors who desire to undertake a rigorous project, for which they receive neither credit nor grade, in addition to their regular academic courses. Following the completion of her project, each scholar delivers a convocation about her topic. As she describes in the above video, 2020 Edith Hamilton Scholar Aeven O'Donnell created a documentary about Watergate for her Edith Hamilton project. Aeven attends Bennington College.
