Two Students Earn Fulbright Awards
Students chosen for Fulbright scholarships are Brian Entler ’13 (left) and Benjamin Turcea ’15 (right). Susan Trussler, Ph.D. (center) is the Fulbright advisor and an associate professor of economics/finance at the University.

Scranton’s long tradition of success with students earning Fulbright scholarships continues with two graduates earning this honor this year. Since 1972, a total of 150 Scranton students have been awarded grants in the competitions administered by the Institute of International Education.

Recipients of the highly coveted international educational exchange grants bestowed by the U.S. government are Benjamin Turcea ’15, an international studies and philosophy major and a member of the Special Jesuit Liberal Arts Honors Program, and Brian Entler ’13, G’15, who holds a master’s in biochemistry.

Turcea, a Baltimore native, was awarded a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to Mongolia, where he will conduct research at the Mongolian University of Life Sciences in Ulaanbaatar.

Entler, of Scranton, was awarded a Fulbright Academic Award to Australia. He will conduct research at Macquarie University in Sydney, as well as with collaborators at the Australian National University in Canberra.
