The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board has awarded six fellowships to Georgia Tech students - the largest number in the Institute's history. Among those six is Jennifer Munson, a graduate student in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering who is pursuing a degree in bioengineering.

Named after Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright Scholarship was established in 1946 as a vehicle for promoting mutual understanding between people of the U.S. and people of other countries. Fulbright grants are made to United States citizens and nationals of other countries for a variety of educational activities, primarily university lecturing, advanced research, graduate study, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools.

Jennifer will use her Fulbright scholarship to fund research in Switzerland. She is investigating nanotherapeutic approaches for treating invasive brain tumors. She says, "It's an amazing opportunity to live and learn in Switzerland during my graduate experience. I think that it will open doors for me in the future, and I am excited to meet new people and experience new things."

Since the Fulbright Scholarship program was established, about 280,000 participants have received awards for their academic merit and leadership potential.
