Carolyn Barnett, PhD candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University, has been awarded a 2018-2019 Fulbright U.S. Student grant to Morocco. She will be a visiting researcher at the Centre Jacques Berque and work with faculty at the National School of Statistics and Applied Economics (INSEA) in Rabat, studying social policy and policymaking processes.

J. William Fulbright was a prominent and gifted American statesman of the 20th century. His political career of over thirty years in the U.S. Congress was distinguished by his unequaled contribution to international affairs and marked by his tenure as the longest serving chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He had profound influence on America’s foreign policy, and his vision for mutual understanding shaped the extraordinary exchange program bearing his name.

With the support of the United States government and through binational partnerships with foreign governments, the Fulbright Scholarship Program sponsors U.S. and foreign participants for exchanges in all areas of endeavor, including the sciences, business, academe, public service, government, and the arts and continues to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
