Recent Student Honors

We're always excited to share good news! Here are a few of the honors that were conferred on Miami students and alumni this spring:

  • Five students and alumni plus two alternates were awarded Fulbright Grants to enable them to teach English or perform research abroad. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected in an open, merit-based competition that considers leadership potential, academic and/or professional achievement, and record of service.

  • Several students were awarded Gilman Scholarships to help fund their study abroad experiences this summer and during the coming academic year. The program has successfully broadened U.S. participation in study abroad, while emphasizing countries and regions where fewer Americans traditionally study.
