Fulbright scholarships provide round-trip travel, health insurance, tuition and living expenses for an academic year. The program is mostly funded by the federal government.
The winners are:
l Soren Christiansen Larsen, geography doctoral student from Lexington, Ill., who will conduct an ethnographic study of the "sense of place" in the Lakes District of British Columbia.
l Max Maximov, May 2001 master's degree recipient in German literature from Germany, will study the representation of Russia and Russians in the literature of the Germanic Middle Ages.
l Ratna Radhakrishna, geography doctoral student from Lawrence, will study the use of natural resources among the indigenous Miskitu people in Honduras.
l Mark Richard Munzinger, history doctoral student from Lawrence, will examine the judicial activity of the High Court of Magdeburg Law in Cracow, Poland.
Two other KU students -- who graduated in May with bachelor's degrees -- already received Fulbright awards. Sean Gordon, Overland Park genetics major, will study molecular biology in Germany. Nikki Horne, Lenexa psychology major, will conduct neurophysical research in Paris.
