Becoming a Fulbright Scholar is one of the highest honors accorded to students, professional college educators and researchers. Among the ranks of Fulbright alumni are 61 Nobel Prize recipients, 75 MacArthur Foundation Fellows, 89 Pulitzer Prize winners, and 40 current or former heads of state or government.1 At Husson University, there are five faculty and staff members who have earned this prestigious honor.
