Carolyn Campbell-Golden, a doctoral candidate in Administration of Higher Education in Auburn University’s College of Education, has received a Fulbright U.S. Scholar International Education Administrator Award to Germany from the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
Campbell-Golden is one of more than 1,200 United States citizens who will teach, conduct research, and provide expertise abroad for the 2016-17 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Scholars Program. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement as well as a record of service and demonstrated leadership in their respective fields.
Campbell-Golden is Vice Chancellor for Advancement at Auburn University at Montgomery. As part of this award, she will participate in group seminars designed to familiarize U.S. higher education administrators with Germany’s higher education system, society, and culture. She will travel to Berlin and other cities in Germany and engage in a series of briefings, government appointments, and campus visits, concluding with meetings with a group of fellow American administrators participating in a similar program in France.
Fulbright Scholars address critical global challenges – from sustainable energy and climate change to public health, education, and food security – while building relationships, knowledge, and leadership in support of the long-term interests of the United States and the world. Fulbright alumni have achieved distinction in many fields, including 54 who have been awarded the Nobel Prize, 82 who have received Pulitzer Prizes, and 33 who have served as a head of state or government.
Congratulations Carolyn! We are very proud of you. Die besten Wünsche für die Zukunft!
