Aven Satre-Meloy wins Fulbright grant

Friday, May. 3, 2013

Graduating senior Environmental Studies major, Aven Satre-Meloy, has been awarded a grant through the U.S. Fulbright Student Program. This grant will support travel to Turkey for a year starting in the fall.

While in Turkey, Aven will teach English and American culture to university students in Turkey, and conduct research on Turkish peoples' experiences as Muslims living in secular, democratic state where a religiously conservative party is currently in power.

Aven worked with three ESS faculty - Leslie Gray, John Farnsworth, and Chris Bacon - in preparing his application.

Congratulations, Aven!
