Senior Callie Fishburn has been made a semifinalist for this year’s Fulbright competition!
The Fulbright program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Congress and the Department of State and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and the people of more than 160 countries worldwide. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields. She will find out sometime this spring whether she is a finalist.
“With the Fulbright I not only hope to earn a master’s degree, but also have eye-opening experiences that broaden my world perspectives,” Fishburn said. “If I receive the Fulbright, I will be studying in Canada at the University of Saskatchewan, and most likely working on a project involving sustainability in indigenous communities within the province. I believe that the project will give me deeper cultural appreciation for native peoples in both Canada and the United States.”
