ICGC is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2014!  The first cohort of ICGC/MacArthur Scholars joined the program in fall 1989.  Twenty-five years later, with a new cohort of fellows joining us this fall, we have much to celebrate and exciting possibilities ahead. We invite the ICGC community to attend the events we are organizing throughout the year to mark this anniversary year.
