Spelman Graduates Earn Fulbright Fellowships

June 2016

Spelman Fulbright Fellows

Four Spelman graduates from the class of 2016 will participate in the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant Program, which places grantees in schools overseas to supplement local English language instruction.

This year's Fulbright fellows are: history major Lindsey Burgess, C’2016, (Morocco); English major Jumaanah Harris (Malaysia); comparative women’s studies major Sarah Brokenborough (Laos); and international studies major Tyra Beaman (Dominican Republic).

“Spelman is very excited that all four of its Fulbright semi-finalists were selected as awardees this year,” said Margery Ganz, Ph.D., Spelman's Fulbright program adviser and director of study abroad.

“For a small liberal arts college to win four U.S. student fellowships in a single year’s competition is a very strong showing. Spelman students compete for Fulbrights both to serve as informal U.S. ambassadors, but also because they see Fulbright as a strong foundation for a career in the global arena.”
