Eight Rollins College students were recently awarded Fulbright scholarships for the 2014-15 school year. Since receiving its first Fulbright Award in 1951, Rollins has produced 57 scholars – 32 since 2006.
This year, the students will travel to eight countries on two continents to teach English as a foreign language. Samar Shaukat, a Dr. Phillips resident, is one of the eight, and she will travel to Indonesia.
The students will join nearly 40,000 individuals participating in U.S. Department of State exchange programs each year. Sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, Fulbright is the nation’s largest international exchange program.
