Apple Design Chief Jony Ive Awarded 2018 Stephen Hawking Fellowship

by John_A

Apple Design Chief Jony Ive has been awarded the 2018 Stephen Hawking Fellowship, the Cambridge Union announced on Tuesday.

Charles Connor, Cambridge Union Society President, said Ive was one of the “most influential individuals in modern technology” when announcing the award.

Ive will speak during the Michaelmas term (the first academic term) at Cambridge University’s Debating Chamber, where he is expected to offer “reflection on his career, split with a more general reflection on technology and design as a whole.”

The fellowship, which is an honorary scholarship to recognize the recipients’ contributions to STEM fields and social discourse, was created by the Cambridge Union Society in partnership with professor Stephen Hawking in 2017.

Stephen Hawking delivered the Inaugural Fellowship Lecture in November of 2017 after the Union Society approached him about the creation of a fellowship in his name. It was one of his last public appearances before his death in 2018.
