Charles Yang awarded a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship


The School of Arts and Sciences’ Charles Yang, also of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and Charles L. Bosk, also of the Perelman School of Medicine, have been named Guggenheim Fellows. Yang will use his Guggenheim Fellowship to support a new line of research exploring how children learn to count and how they develop the conceptual understanding of numbers.


On April 4, 2018, the Board of Trustees of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation approved the awarding of 173 Guggenheim Fellowships (including two joint Fellowships) to a diverse group of scholars, artists, and scientists. Appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise, the successful candidates were chosen from a group of almost 3,000 applicants in the Foundation’s ninety-fourth competition.
