Congrats to UCO alumna Elizabeth Dahl for selection as a semi-finalist for the Fulbright Program

The Office of High-Impact Practices (OHIP) is pleased to announce UCO alumna Elizabeth Dahl (BA History-Museum Studies, 2016; MA History, 2018) has been selected as a Semi-Finalist for a Fulbright Research/Study Grant, advancing to the final round of selection for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the 2023-2024 academic year.

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Since 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 400,000 participants from over 160 countries the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

The primary source of funding for the Fulbright Program is an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments, host institutions, corporations, and foundations in foreign countries and in the United States also provide direct and indirect support. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields.

I am so pleased for Elizabeth, and wish her the best of luck in the final selection process,” said Dr. Michael Springer, Director, Office of High-Impact Practices. “Fulbright awards are a great opportunity for UCO students, who engage with Global Competencies as a part of the university’s six tenets of Transformative Learning. Our students are encouraged to engage with global perspectives and to develop tools to adapt to a continuously changing global society.”
