Kagen Quiballo, a senior double majoring in Mathematics and Statistics with a minor in Informatics is one of two undergraduates from the University of Illinois to have been awarded the ARL Fellowships for Digital & Inclusive Excellence.
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Fellowship Selection Committee selected twelve undergraduates from around the nation for the 2019-2020 fellowship. The ARL fellowship is designed to introduce undergraduate students from many disciplines to the care and management of digital information resources. The fellowship offers a year-long paid internship at a partner library, formal mentorship, and other benefits. The program encourages undergraduates to consider a future in library and information sciences.
Kagen has also been involved with research through the Illinois Geometry Lab, and is a student ambassador for both the Department of Statistics and the Department of Mathematics. Outside of academics, Kagen is active in several dance groups and is artistic director of ImagiNation Dance Crew.
