KU students earn Fulbrights

June 20, 2001


Four more Kansas University students have received Fulbright awards to study abroad during the 2001-02 school year.

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:

- Soren Christiansen Larsen, geography doctoral student from Lexington, Ill., who will conduct an ethnographic study of the "sense of place" British Columbia.

- 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.

- Ratna Radhakrishna, geography doctoral student from Lawrence, will study the use of natural resources among the indigenous Miskitu people in Honduras.

- 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.
