Dr. Patrick Chura, associate professor of English, has been placed on the national Fulbright Specialists Roster, a group of U.S. scholars selected by the Fulbright Scholarship Board to receive grants for short-term collaborative projects at universities around the world.

For the next five years, Dr. Chura will be eligible to deliver two lecturing and teacher-training projects of up to 6 weeks’ duration at universities in over 100 countries.
