Freshman University Fellow and English major Adam Quinn is one of six U.S. students selected for the Fulbright Commission Summer Institute at Queen's University in Belfast, Ireland, July 9-August 3.

"Our program encourages students to make the most of the summer break by attending institutes, conducting research, and studying overseas," said University Fellows Associate Director Ashley Floyd. "Adam's selection as a Fulbright Summer Institute scholar allows him to do all three”.

The Fulbright honor, which includes airfare, tuition and room and board for the program, will introduce students to the perspectives of world leaders and provide academic credit focused on Northern Ireland in terms of its political, economic and cultural relationships within the United Kingdom and in the world. It also will help open the door to postgraduate or postdoctoral opportunities in the Fulbright Student and Scholar programs.

"Adam spent three months preparing his application for this nationally-competitive scholarship program, and we are delighted such a prestigious organization has recognized his potential," said Floyd.

Others selected for the summer program are students at Harvard College, Oberlin College, University of Arizona, Washington University
and Wellesley College.
