Meet the 2015 Fulbright Scholars

From tutoring North Korean defectors to researching solar energy and hazardous medical waste, Northwestern University Fulbright scholars are pursuing their dreams and working to make a difference abroad.

A near-record 26 students and alumni accepted the Fulbright U.S. Student Program grant to teach, conduct research, study or participate in service organizations for the 2015-16 academic year. An additional three grants were offered but declined.

The award winners have academic backgrounds ranging from mechanical engineering to art history. They will be serving in all corners of the world, from the United Kingdom and Germany to South Korea, Russia, Morocco, Peru, Vietnam and Jordan.
