• Janette Boughman, College of Natural Science — Australia
• Gregg Howe, College of Natural Science — Japan

“For nearly 70 years, MSU has celebrated the innovative work of our Fulbright Scholars,” said Interim President Teresa K. Woodruff, Ph.D. “MSU’s status as a longstanding top producing Fulbright institution not only digs right down to the roots of our mission to advance knowledge and transform lives, it also inspires our strategy to address global challenges. Congratulations to this year’s remarkable scholars and thank you for helping make the world a better place.”
The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program, offering MSU’s 2022-2023 scholars professional opportunities in nine countries on five continents.
