Four UNCW students have applied to be part of the prestigious 2013-2014 Fulbright U.S. Student Program which provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistantships. Candidates submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year in a country outside the U.S. The students applying this year are Austin Cloyed (Brazil), Julia Daugherty (Spain), Lydia Shippen (Jordan), and Keenan Withers (Mauritius). Fulbrighters meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program is open to graduating seniors and recent Bachelor's degree recipients. UNCW is home to a large number of past Fulbrighters who are now on the faculty and staff. A list of these individuals and more information on the program can be found at http://uncw.edu/csurf/fulbrightpage.
