The Schwartz Visiting Fellow Program. Pomfret School, Pomfret CT

Pomfret School welcomes many distinguished guests to the school each year.

The Schwartz Visiting Fellow Program began in 1988, when brothers Michael L. Schwartz ’66 and Eric A. Schwartz ’69, both former trustees, awarded Pomfret a generous annual grant to begin a visiting fellowship program. The Schwartz brothers’ aim was to design a program to significantly enhance the intellectual and cultural environment of the school community by inviting a distinguished person or persons to lecture, discuss, and work with students and faculty.

The Schwartz Visiting Fellow is a prominent figure from the world of art, literature, science, or politics invited to the Pomfret campus for three days each year to share his or her unique experiences, ideas, and insights with Pomfret students. Designated as the Schwartz Fellow, this guest is selected by a different department each year.
