Willamette Among Top Producers of Fulbright Students

Willamette University is among the top producers of 2007-08 U.S. Fulbright Fellows, according to a recent announcement by the Fulbright Program that was highlighted in an Oct. 26 article in The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Three students and alumni from Willamette won Fulbright awards for 2007-08, making Willamette one of just two Oregon schools in the listing of top universities. Twelve Willamette students and alumni have received Fulbright grants in the past five years.

This year's winners are Elizabeth Humphrey '07 and Maia Hoover '07, who are teaching English in South Korea, and Craig Webster '05, who is studying film in Hungary.

Under the Fulbright program, almost 1,500 American students in more than 100 different fields of study were offered grants to study, teach English and conduct research in more than 125 countries.

The Fulbright competition is administered at Willamette through Monique Bourque, director of Student Academic Grants and Awards. To learn more, contact her at mbourque@willamette.edu or (503) 370-6607.
