Sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright Program provides funding for students, scholars, teachers, and professionals to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools.
I was a US Fulbright Scholar (2006-2007) based in the IWA (Irish World Academy of Music and Dance) at the University of Limerick. It was a transformative experience, and one that has deeply influenced my life and ongoing research and creative projects. I served the US Department of State, CIES (Council for International Exchange of Scholars) and IIE (Institute of International Education) as a Fulbright Ambassador (2010-2012). I will always be a Fulbright Ambassador!
