Student Going to Slovak Republic as Fulbright Scholar

April 9, 2014

Bradley University student Derek Cantu has been awarded a 2014-2015 Fulbright Student Award to the Slovak Republic. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program of the United States.  Derek will represent the country as a cultural ambassador while he is overseas, helping to enhance mutual understanding between Americans and the people in the Slovak Republic. 

In addition to the students earning Fulbright Scholarships, 10 current Bradley faculty members have been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship during their careers.  Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 325,000 participants with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. 

The U.S. Department of State recently announced the complete list of colleges and universities producing the most 2013-2014 Fulbright students in the United States and it ranked Bradley sixth nationally among universities of its type.
