Six Miami students named Fulbright finalists
Six Miami University students are among the Fulbright U.S. Student Program’s recommended applicants for the finalist competition for graduate study, research or English teaching assistantships abroad for 2010-11.
The applications of the recommended students — chosen by the Fulbright National Screening Committee — will be considered by the local Fulbright committees in countries around the world. Final decisions will be announced in March and April.
In fall 2009, 15 Miami students applied for the grants through the Campus Fulbright Committee headed by David Keitges, director of international education. They were among the 5,000 applications submitted nationwide.
The Fulbright Program is the government’s largest scholarship program, sending about 1,500 Americans abroad for a year of fully sponsored study or teaching each year.
