USC Announces Seven Fulbright US Student Grant Winners
For the 15th consecutive year, USC will be represented abroad by Fulbright US Student grantees conducting research, studying and serving as English Teaching Assistants. This year our seven Fulbright Finalists are Eric Bringley (declined), Gerad Gentry, Kelly Goldberg, Morgan Lundy, Anna Porter (declined), Jared Thompson and Matthew Wagner, while four USC students, Katee Driscoll, Lauren Hamm, Anais Parada and Amy Yanicak, have been named Alternates. These students are among the over 1,900 U.S. citizens who will teach, conduct research, and provide expertise abroad for the 2016-2017 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement as well as record of service and demonstrated leadership in their respective fields. Since 1983, USC has had over 100 Fulbright student scholars in Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, conducting research, studying in graduate programs and teaching English in K-college settings.
