Judah Broekemeier will travel oversees this summer in recognition of his achievements in academics and community service. “He is the third student in German to receive a Fulbright in four years,” says Dr. Gwyneth Cliver of UNO’s Foreign Languages Department.
Broekemeier has received a Fulbright U.S. Student Program award for an English teaching assistantship in Germany for the 2018-2019 academic year from the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
Broekemeier graduated magna cum laude from UNO this May with two majors, foreign languages and secondary education. He is one of more than 1,900 U.S. citizens who will study, conduct research and teach abroad for the 2018-2019 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields."Fulbright students share the UNO Maverick spirit worldwide and further the global reach of our campus. They make us proud," said B. J. Reed, UNO senior vice chancellor for academic affairs. "Our history of Fulbright students continues to go from strength to strength over the years."
