Students, graduates receive Fulbright Scholarships

Once again, Washington University in St. Louis has strong representation in the prestigious Fulbright program. Twelve current or recent students received Fulbright U.S. Student Program scholarships to teach English or to conduct research abroad during the 2013-14 academic year.

Some faculty members also will participate in Fulbright programs this year, though those announcements aren’t expected until later this fall.

“The Fulbright U.S. Student program offers unique opportunities for our students with international interests in all disciplines and degree programs, and WUSTL has an outstanding faculty review committee that helps applicants submit the best possible application,” said Amy C. Suelzer, PhD, assistant director of International and Area Studies in Arts & Sciences and Fulbright Program adviser for WUSTL.

“Whether pursuing an English teaching assistantship or a self-designed research project, our applicants always impress us through their level of academic achievement, their dedication to their field of study and their commitment to the ambassadorial character of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Their success is a tribute to the strength of both our applicants and our process,” Suelzer said.

To see details about the students, who hail from Arts & Sciences, the Brown School and the School of Engineering & Applied Science, and to hear their thoughts and plans in their own words, read the full story in the WUSTL Newsroom.
