The Fulbright is the most prestigious scholarship offered by the U.S. Government. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards grants for graduate study and research abroad. It is possible to apply for a grant as a current law student as well as for post-graduate study and we strongly encourage you to consider this opportunity. We are delighted that two recent Pace Law graduates, Ira Seligman (JD ’10) and Elaine Hsiao (JD ’09, LLM ’10) were awarded Fulbright Grants for the 2010-2011 academic year. Ira traveled to Norway to study sustainable fishing policy while Elaine traveled to Uganda to conduct research on trans-boundary peace parks. Other recent awardees include Jorge Fiquerao (JD ‘08) who studied forest conversation in India, and Nicole Harkin (JD ’03) who studied land-use law in Germany. Pace Law School Professors David Cassuto, Linda Fentiman, John Nolon and Alexander Greenawalt are all prior recipients of Fulbright Grants. This year’s recipients are Professors Ann Bartow (China) and Darren Rosenblum (France). Read more about this year's Fulbright Faculty Scholars.
