Joel Burt-Miller, '16, has been selected for a 2016-2017 Fulbright U.S. Student Award to India

While in India he will be completing an English Teaching Assistantship where he will be placed in a non-profit school working with middle school and high school students teaching conversational English and composition. He will also be engaging in community health research and work based on the community he will be placed in, possibly also incorporating music and the arts. As of now the specifics of his project are unknown because he does not know where he will be yet, but "He is very excited!"

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program of the United States. As a Finalist, you will represent the country as a cultural ambassador while you are overseas, helping to enhance mutual understanding between Americans and the people in India. You will join over 100,000 Fulbright U.S. Student Program alumni who have undertaken grants since the program began in 1948.


Three of the four of this year’s Ruderman Scholar awards went to HSSP BS student Jennifer Bromberg, and HSSP BA students Elizabeth Chalfin and Jennifer Lee. Read more in Brandeis NOW
