As a proud Da I am thrilled to post the following.
FROM SECRETARY OF STATE KIM WYMAN:
WASHINGTON STATE LIBRARY: NOW WITH MORE FULBRIGHT SPECIALISTS!
“It’s not every day that one of our own is selected to be a potential Fulbright Specialist, so when it happens we need to make note of it! Washington Talking Book and Braille Library Director Danielle Miller was recently accepted into the Fulbright Specialist Roster.
The Fulbright Specialist Program, part of the larger Fulbright Program, was established in 2001 by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The program pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise, strengthen institutional linkages, hone their skills, gain international experience, and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions.
Specialists, who represent a wide range of professional and academic disciplines, are competitively selected to join the Fulbright Specialist Roster based on their knowledge, skill sets, and ability to make a significant contribution to projects overseas. Those individuals that have been approved to join the Fulbright Specialist Roster are then eligible to be matched with approved projects designed by foreign host institutions from over 150 countries and other areas. Once abroad, Specialists partner with their host institution to conduct project activities in support of the host institution’s priorities and goals.
Way to go, Danielle!”
