NEW: Assumption College Students Awarded Fulbright Scholarships

Friday, May 11, 2012

 

Two students at Assumption College have received prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student Program scholarships.

The two students to receive the scholarships are Stephanie Bouley of North Smithfield, RI and Kathleen Burns of Norfolk. Both are seniors, and each will be funded to study and conduct research in Europe over the next academic year.

Stephanie Bouley is a double major in biotechnology and chemistry that will conduct research on the BK Virus under the supervision of Prof. Thilo Stehle at the University of Tubingen in Germany. Burns, a psychology major and German studies minor, will research the determinants of adolescent happiness in Lithuania at Vilnius University under the supervision of Prof. Robertas Povilaitis.

“Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic merit as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields,” Prof. Smriti Rao, Assumption’s post-graduate scholarship advisor said. “We are proud of our students’ commitment to intellectual growth and cultural awareness. They want to make a difference in our world, and the Fulbright scholarship provides them the opportunity to contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.”

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program will allow more than 1,700 U.S. citizens to study, teach and conduct research abroad over the next academic year. The program operates in more than 155 countries worldwide. For more information on the program, click here.
