Clarkson Professor Lou Ann Lange Awarded Fulbright Scholarship
Clarkson University Assistant Professor of History Lou Ann Lange has been honored as a 2006 fall Fulbright scholar grantee by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. She will spend the fall semester of 2006 in Cluj, Romania, and the spring semester of 2007 in Lasi, Romania.
Since its inception more than half a century ago, about 215,000 "Fulbrighters" - some 80,000 Americans and 135,000 from abroad - have participated in the program and have gone on to excel in the political, business and entertainment fields.
The program is administered by the U.S. Information Agency under policy guidelines established by the presidentially appointed J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board and in cooperation with a number of private organizations. Scholarships are awarded through open competition, with final selections made by the Foreign Scholarship Board. Forty-one foreign governments share in the funding of these exchanges.
The United States Information Agency is an independent foreign affairs agency within the executive branch that explains and supports U.S. foreign policy and national security interests abroad through a wide range of information programs. The agency promotes mutual understanding between the United States and other countries through a series of educational and cultural exchange activities.
