Nancy O’Neill, a senior music education major in the College of Fine Arts, has been selected for a 2013–2014 Fulbright Student Scholarship to study at the Resonaari School in Helsinki, Finland, and its use of new technologies to teach special needs students.
The Fulbright Program is one of the most prestigious awards programs worldwide, operating in more than 155 countries. Forty-three Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes, and 78 have won Pulitzer Prizes. More Nobel laureates are former Fulbright recipients than any other award program.
The Fulbright Program aims to bring a little more knowledge, a little more reason, and a little more compassion into world affairs and thereby increase the chance that nations will learn at last to live in peace and friendship.
—Sen. J. William Fulbright
