Students Recognized by Fulbright Program

Hannah Kay, a senior Russian major from Springfield, Ill., has been offered a Fulbright Grant to Russia for the 2008-2009 academic year. Final award is contingent upon medical clearance and other documentation requirements.

Established in 1946 under Congressional legislation introduced by the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the program is designed “to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and people of other countries.”

Two other Fulbright applicants, Doug Eudy, a senior majoring in biology and art history from Floristell, Mo., and Greg Wiser, an alumnus with degrees in German and philosophy and religion, are awaiting final decisions at the host country level. They were recommended by the United States National Screening Committee and, if awarded, the grants will take them to Armenia and Germany, respectively.
