A graduate student and alumnus have been chosen for the Fulbright U.S. Student Awards for 2013-14.
The winners are Joshua B. Luckens, MFA ’13, a Theatre Education graduate student, and Camron S. Terwillger, MFA ’07, who majored in Creative Writing.
Luckens will go to Colombia to teach English and to collaborate with local theater artists.
Terwillger will go to Canada to visit McGill University’s Institute for the Study of Canada, where he will research and draft Yet Wilderness Grew in My Heart, a novel set in New York and Quebec during the Seven Years War of 1756.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides highly coveted grants for individually designed study and research projects or English teaching assistantships. The Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country. The program selects strong scholars in many fields to facilitate cultural exchange through direct interaction in the classroom, field, home and in routine tasks, which allows the grantee to gain an appreciation for other’s viewpoints and beliefs.
