Albena Ivova Gesheva ’17

The University remains among the nation’s top producers of U.S. Fulbright students according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. With five student scholars last year, Scranton was ranked sixth among master’s institutions named as “Top Producers of Fulbright Scholars and Students 2016-17” by the U.S. Department of  State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The Fulbright program, administered by the Institute of International Education, is the U.S. government’s premier scholarship program for overseas graduate study, research and teaching.

Since 1972, 156 University students have been awarded grants in the competition that includes Fulbrights. The 2017-18 recipient was Albena Ivova Gesheva ’17, a Scranton resident born in Pleven, Bulgaria, who will research the effect of light intensity on echolocation  behavior in tropical bats at the University of Ulm’s Institute of Evolutionary Ecology and Conservation Genomics in Ulm, Germany.
