CAS Students awarded Fulbright Scholarships

Two Senior students in the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences have been awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship.  We would like to give a huge congratulations to both recipients!

The goal of the Fulbright program is to increase mutual understanding and support friendly and peaceful relations between people of the United States and people of other countries. The US Department of State sponsors Fulbright program exchanges with more than 155 countries around the world. Fulbright scholars are engaged in projects on environmental issues, food security, public health, education, and other challenges that require innovation, creativity, and knowledge that transcends borders. Fulbrighters are current and future leaders, ready to share their knowledge in culture, open to new ideas, and committed to international engagement.  Fulbright alumni have gone on to become Noble prize winners, heads of state, ambassadors, leaders in scientific research and innovation, educators, artists, business professionals, and civic leaders. Above all, Fulbrighters exemplify the power of international academic exchange to transform lives, bridge geographic and cultural boundaries, and promote a peaceful and more prosperous world.

Matthew Crager a Communication Arts & Sciences major, with Portuguese and Spanish minors will be traveling to Brazil. And Laura Kastner with Statistics and Communications Arts & Sciences majors, will be traveling to Malaysia.

Congratulations Matt & Laura!
