peaceful resolution of conflict in their school and/or community. Examples of this

Fulbright Fellowships are among the most prestigious fellowships for graduating students, surpassed only
by the Rhodes and a few others. They pay for a year spent in some foreign country.
There are two types: research Fulbrights, for which the students must have a project,
a location, and a contact there, and in some cases knowledge of the language of the
host country; and teaching Fulbrights, where the students go to another country to
teach English. For these, they do not need any of the above, but they do need to convince
the host country that they want this student as a teacher. (Juniors should contact
Dr. Reingold on campus in order to start early.)
