Four UMW alumnae are currently traveling, teaching, and researching abroad thanks to the prestigious, competitive grants.
Anna Boland ’16 teaches in Niedersachsen, Germany; Lauren Bortfeld ’15 teaches in Argentina; Lisa Johnson ’15 teaches in La Rioja, Spain; and Luci Coleman ’16 conducts research in Cape Town, South Africa. A fifth alumna, Cara Wimberley ’15, had been awarded a Fulbright to teach in Turkey, but Fulbright canceled that program after a coup attempt in that country last summer.
Associate Professor of History Nabil Al-Tikriti and Associate Professor of Biology Dianne Baker are co-advisers for UMW’s Fulbright program. Since 2006, UMW has had 17 Fulbright students.
