Five faculty members have also been named Fulbright Scholars. Sean Cleary, David Drummond Gow, Geralyn Marie Schulz, Lars Willnat and Liang Yu will spend time researching across the globe.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the idea of GW Law School alumnus and U.S. Sen. J. William Fulbright, has enabled students to undertake self-designed programs in a host of disciplines across the world since its inception in 1946.
The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, with financial support coming from an annual appropriation from Congress to the Department of State.
