Two Remembrance Scholars among Fulbright Recipients

Two 2017-2018 Remembrance Scholars are among the Syracuse University students and alumnae to receive Fulbright Grants for the 2018-2019 academic year. Overall, six students and three alumnae were selected to participate in the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program. Two students have received study/research grants. The research grants and ETAs are awarded through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program from the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. The Fulbright program allows university graduates to immerse themselves in culture and language in a foreign country teaching English or engaging in a research or study program.
