Five Earn Fulbright Awards

Five Earn Fulbright Awards
Seated, from left: Sarah Fitch ’16, Susan Trussler, Ph.D., Fulbright advisor and associate professor of economics and finance; and Aimee Miller ’12, current health administration graduate student. Standing, from left: Olivia Gillespie ’16, Ivan Simpson-Kent ’16 and Veronica Sinotte ’16.

Four members of the Class of 2016 and a member of the Class of 2012 have earned Fulbright grants, the esteemed merit-based scholarships that enable students to spend a year conducting research or teaching abroad. Since 1972, 155 Scranton students have been awarded grants in the competition, which include Fulbrights, administered by the Institute of International Education. The five Scranton alumni will complete their Fulbrights during the 2016-2017 academic year. 

The Fulbright Program is the “flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government,” according to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their respective fields. 

“This year, all five of our Fulbright national semi-finalists received awards, which is a remarkable achievement,” said Susan Trussler, Ph.D., the University’s Fulbright Program advisor and associate professor of economics and finance.
