(LOS ANGELES, CA) –  UCLA has produced seven (7) awardees of the prestigious Fulbright U.S. fellowship for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year. Two others were offered the award, but declined.

The awardees will embark on one-year research projects or teaching assistantships beginning in Fall 2019 in the countries of Morocco, Peru, Brazil, Spain, and Mexico. Their work will range from stress and its effect on seizures to influences on art in Colonial Mexico to the relationship between architecture and conquest.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching worldwide. It is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields. The Fulbright Program at UCLA is administered by the Graduate Division.
