BYU student receives Fulbright Student Grant

Hannah Pritchett, a senior in linguistics at Brigham Young University, has been awarded a J. William Fulbright U.S. Student Grant from the United States Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

Pritchett will use her grant to study linguistics and teach conversational English in Semarang, Indonesia, for one year. Having lived there during high school, she said she is looking forward to going back.

Pritchett plans to research how young people in Indonesia speak the country’s official language, Bahasa Indonesian, and the more common language, Javanese.

“Do they use both? Is there code-switching?” she said. “I want to do research on how they use it.”

Following her year in Indonesia, Pritchett plans on doing graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley.

Pritchett will be one of more than 1,200 U.S. citizens to travel and study abroad for the 2006-2007 academic year through Fulbright programs. Established in 1946, the program selects recipients based on academic or professional achievement to support mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the rest of the world. The Fulbright program operates in more than 150 countries worldwide.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
