The Fulbright program funds graduate education for international students wanting to study in the USA. Students apply for the scholarship in their home country, and after a long process, they can pursue a Master's or Ph.D. program in the United States. The program was founded by the former United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946 and is considered to be one of the most widely recognized and prestigious scholarships in the world.
Besides that, she got granted a Top Scholar Award by the University of Washington. This includes full support from the University and the opportunity to teach undergraduate courses of the Design program.
Even though Claire will not be part of the team in Lucerne anymore, we will continue to cooperate with her in the form of regular exchange and update about her experience studying in the United States.
We wish Claire all the best for the next steps in her career!
