The Benjamin Ling Fellowship
In the Spring of 2002, the parents and friends of Ben Ling ‘98 established a fellowship to honor Ben’s memory. Awarded annually, the Ling Fellowship supports a Colby Government major who undertakes either an internship or a significant research project. While he was at Colby, Ben majored in Government and was involved in a number of internships and major research projects. A summa cum laude graduate of Colby, Ben went to Washington in order to pursue a career working on agricultural and ranching issues. He died of cancer in 2001.
