Until 2017 only three IPFW students had won prestigious Fulbright scholarships, but this month that number jumps to five. Two Arts and Sciences students—Nathan Brophy (political science) and Cody Fuelling (political science/history)—were awarded Fulbright Scholarships for the 2017–18 academic year. Brophy has been awarded a Fulbright grant to Romania, where he plans to research political parties and civic engagement. Fuelling has been awarded a Fulbright grant to Luxembourg, where he will examine the current state of genocide education in secondary schools.
The previous three Fulbright recipients were also College of Arts and Sciences graduates. Alexander Allison, a 2015 history graduate, won a 2016–17 Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in Colombia. Brandon Gearhart, a political science major, was a Fulbright student in South Korea in 2008. Eldin Hasic, also a political science major, was a Fulbright student in Ukraine in 2010.
