Collins awarded a Fulbright

Dr. Steve Collins was awarded a Fulbright award for this coming academic year.

He will be stationed in east Africa collecting data on the role of journalism in the development of social institutions and democratic norms. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.”

The program makes a number of awards at undergraduate, postgraduate, post-doctoral and fellowship levels.

Fulbrights are prestigious, career-enhancing awards. They also confer special status on winners during their year of foreign study, as outstanding, officially recognized representatives of their country.
