Full Slate of Fulbrights: UNH sees record number of Fulbright Scholars
A record number of UNH students and alumni have been named 2018 Fulbright Scholars in one of the nation’s most competitive programs of its kind.
Fulbright, the U.S. Department of State’s flagship cross-cultural exchange program, provides grants that allow students to conduct independent research, pursue graduate study or teach English abroad for terms of eight to 10 months. Of the 15 UNH applicants for 2018, nine were named semifinalists and eight have received Fulbright awards. Six of the recipients are students or alumna of the College of Liberal Arts: current undergraduates Madison Pierce ’18 (English teaching major), Eden Suoth ’18 (math and philosophy majors) and Rory Wilson ’18 (philosophy major), and alumnae Shannon Bradley ’17 (Spanish major), Jackie Gilbert '17 (anthropology and international affairs majors) and Erin Lee ’17 (English teaching major).
