BYU claims five Fulbright Scholars for 2009-2010

Five professors from Brigham Young University have been named Fulbright Scholars for 2009-2010. They include:

Neil J. Anderson, linguistics and English language, Guatemala.

Bruce R. Bachand, archaeology, Mexico.

Richard O. Kellems, plant and wildlife sciences, Hungary.

Allen W. Palmer, communications, Kyrgyz Republic.

Gloria E. Wheeler, public administration, Mongolia.

Both Anderson and Palmer have completed previous Fulbright fellowships in Costa Rica and Namibia, respectively.

The Fulbright Program, established in 1946 under legislation introduced by then-Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. The Fulbright Program operates in more than 155 countries worldwide.

The program is intended to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

“This year, approximately 1,250 U.S. faculty and professionals received Fulbright Scholar or Specialist awards to teach or conduct research abroad,” said Sabine O'Hara, executive director of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars.

The BYU grantees join more than 50,000 distinguished alumni who have earned a Fulbright grant since the program's inception, she said.

Since 1947, the Council for International Exchange of Scholars has assisted the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board in administering the Fulbright Program.
