The 24 recipients range from a 32 year old Health Services Innovator to a 69 year old Painter.  Each fellow will receive $500,000 over the next 5 years to pursue their passions.

I have been lucky enough to meet and sit down with 2007 recipient Stuart Dybek from Northwestern University and it was a pleasure.  He truly was worthy of a “genius” grant and I hope that the new recipients can accomplish some of their visions with the money they’re going to receive.
