The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The primary source of funding for the Fulbright Program is an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments, host institutions, corporations, and foundations in foreign countries and in the United States also provide direct and indirect support. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields. The Program operates in over 160 countries worldwide.
Brock is a second year MIAGE student and is a semi-finalist for a Fulbright Research award to Lithuania. Brock would like to examine the effects of Russian misinformation and disinformation on Lithuanian society and Russia’s campaign has negatively impacted trust in the national government.
Chris is also a second year MIAGE student, and is a semi-finalist for a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant award to Kenya. He intends to implement programs in the classroom to help the students to effectively communicate in English.
Congratulations to them both!
