Smith Fulbright Scholars Heading in All Directions

Among this year’s crop of 41 fellowship recipients at Smith, a record-breaking 17 are Fulbright Award winners, topping last year’s school record of 14 Fulbrighters.

The Fulbright award is a highly coveted scholarship given annually by the U.S. Department of State to support student projects and academic endeavors abroad. The Fulbright student scholarship, which was named after Senator J. William Fulbright, is intended for recent bachelor’s degree recipients, and master’s and doctoral candidates, as well as young professionals and artists. The Fulbright program is the largest international exchange program offered in the United States, operating in more than 140 countries.

Smith’s Fulbright scholars -- 12 graduates of the class of 2006 and five alumnae -- are headed off to 10 different countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America to pursue a range of research projects and teaching jobs.

Here are the plans of three of them (click on their pictures for profiles):
