Silvia Martin Receives a Prestigious Place on a Fulbright Summer Institute to Wales

Silvia Martin, a student in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science, received a place on a Fulbright Summer Institute to study at Cardiff University, Bangor University, and Aberystwyth University in Wales on one of the most prestigious and selective summer scholarship programmes operating world-wide.

The US-UK Fulbright Commission is the only bi-lateral, transatlantic scholarship programme, offering awards and summer programmes for study or research in any field, at any accredited US or UK university. The Commission is part of the Fulbright programme conceived by Senator J William Fulbright in the aftermath of World War II to promote leadership, learning and empathy between nations through educational exchange. Award recipients and summer programme participants will be the future leaders for tomorrow and support the ‘special relationship’ between the US and UK.

As a participant, Silvia has been selected from a strong applicant pool to experience the UK on a six week summer programme.  The programme theme is “Contemporary Wales: Industry, Politics, Culture and Change”. Participants will have the chance to explore the geography, culture, heritage and history of Wales, through visiting museums, galleries, parks, castles and islands.

Congratulations, Silvia!
