The Harrington Fellows Program was created by Sybil B. Harrington as a tribute to her late husband, Donald D. Harrington. She envisioned a program that would support gifted and ambitious scholars, who would, in turn, share their knowledge and success with future generations. A $30 million endowment was funded by the Sybil B. Harrington Trust and The Don and Sybil Harrington Foundation to support the program.
