Saint Anselm College now has a U.S. Student Fulbright Advising Program to provide encouragement and support to students interested in competing for these prestigious, highly competitive government scholarships.

Kimberly Kersey Asbury, of the Department of Fine Arts, serves as the college’s Student Fulbright Program advisor. She is the point of contact for students and organizes information sessions and application workshops. One student has applied and several juniors intend to apply for next year. The Student Fulbright Program is also open to alumni of the college.

Several faculty members have been recipients of Fulbright scholarships for study, research, or teaching in their disciplines. Recently, Loretta Brady ’99, associate professor of psychology, became the latest faculty member to be selected. She will lecture and conduct research in Cyprus in spring 2013. The Fulbright Program is the U.S. Government’s premier scholarship program, awarding approximately 1,100 grants annually.
