Six Students, Alumni Named Fulbright Award Winners
Six Carnegie Mellon University seniors and alumni will be heading east and west later this year to conduct research and teach as 2019 Fulbright Award winners.
The U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs sponsors the Fulbright U.S. Student Program to "increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries." Winners are selected based on a number of factors, including their proposal, called a "Statement of Grant Purpose," academic record and personal qualifications.
Two of this year's Fulbright winners have a connection to the Department of Modern Languages and they are:
Bronwyn Donohue, a 2018 alumna with a bachelor of fine arts in directing and minors in film and German studies
Jessica Jue, Class of 2019, bachelor of science in biological sciences with an additional major in Chinese Studies
