Accolades and Highlights

Congratulations to our Director, Dr. Andrew Sobiesuo! The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board has selected Professor Andrew Sobiesuo, Associate Provost for International Education and Professor of Spanish, to receive a prestigious Fulbright Award to Germany IEA (Internal Energy Agency).

"The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries."

Congratulations to Vegas Kremser! She received a Gilman Scholarship for her 2017-2018 program in the United Kingdom (Bristol) with our affiliate partner, USAC.

"The Gilman Scholarship Program broadens the student population that studies and interns abroad by supporting undergraduates who might not otherwise participate due to financial constraints.  The program aims to encourage students to study and intern in a diverse array of countries and world regions. The program also encourages students to study languages, especially critical need languages (those deemed important to national security). Veterans of military service are encouraged to apply, and preference is given to veterans when other factors are equivalent. By supporting undergraduate students who have high financial need, the program has been successful in supporting students who have been historically underrepresented in education abroad, including but not limited to first-generation college students, students in STEM fields, ethnic minority students, students with disabilities, students attending HBCUs or other minority-serving institutions, students attending community colleges, and students coming from U.S. states with less study abroad participation."

Congratulations to Candace Rohr! She received a Freeman-ASIA Scholarship for her study abroad with our Exchange Program, Kansai Gadai.  

"A Freeman-ASIA award provides need-based funding to assist the recipient with the cost of the study abroad program and related expenses, including airfare, basic living costs, local transportation, books, etc."
