USC Announces Seven Fulbright US Student Grant Finalists
For the 16th consecutive year, USC will be represented abroad by Fulbright US Student grantees conducting research, studying and serving as English Teaching Assistants. This year our seven Fulbright Finalists (those offered the Fulbright Student grant) are Victoria Belcher, Caroline Blount, Selena Dyer, Ian Giocondo, James Jacocks, Chelsea Morris, and Julie Whitehead, while four USC students, Kevin Anneken, Anais Parada, Mark Rodehorst, and William Welsh, have been named Alternates. These students are among the over 1,900 U.S. citizens who will teach, conduct research and provide expertise abroad for the 2017-2018 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement as well as record of service and demonstrated leadership in their respective fields. Since 1983, USC has had over 100 Fulbright student scholars in Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, conducting research, studying in graduate programs and teaching English in K-college settings.
