New Fulbright Science Awards

The State Department plans to award 25 extended Fulbright scholarships to foreign graduate students in science and engineering, who will be chosen by "a blue-ribbon panel of experts in a global competition rather than through the traditional bilateral agreements," writes Science Now. This article, recommended by Fulbrighter Dr. Walter Berger, quotes Deputy Under Secretary of State Tom Farrell:
We wanted to send a clear signal that this country is intent on welcoming foreign talent, especially future scientific and technical leaders. What better way to do that than through our most important global brand name in international education, the Fulbright program?
Besides, Fulbrighters improve US security: The National Security Language Initiative expands the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program, "to allow 300 native speakers of critical need languages to come to the U.S. to teach in U.S. universities and schools in 2006-07."
