USC Beaufort Vice Chancellor for Advancement and External Relations, Dr. Lynn McGee, has been selected for a 2016-17 US Scholar grant to participate in a Fulbright International Education Administrators seminar. Dr. McGee’s selection makes her the first Fulbright recipient to receive the prestigious award while an employee of USC Beaufort and the first IEA seminar recipient in the USC system outside of the Columbia campus.
The International Education Administrators seminars help U.S. senior higher education officials create empowering connections with the societal, cultural and higher education systems of other countries. These learning opportunities and connections foster the ability to strengthen a study abroad program at USCB and to build international faculty and student collaborations for the Hospitality Management degree program on the new Hilton Head Island Campus which will open in the Fall of 2018.
The Fulbright Scholar Program offers nearly 500 teaching and research awards in over 125 countries and is now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 academic year. Applications for the next cycle of awards are due August 1, 2016.
