Gerald Gems, professor of health and physical education, was awarded a Fulbright Senior Specialist grant in U.S. Studies—Pop Culture and will teach and act as a consultant at the University of Copenhagen during the month of April and again in December. Gems will conduct his work during his professional term this spring.
Unlike the typical longer-term Fulbright grants, the Fulbright Senior Specialist Program provides short-term Fulbright grants of two to six weeks, giving U.S. faculty and professionals opportunities to undertake different types of activities. These may include collaboration with professional counterparts on curriculum and faculty development, institutional planning, and more. The Fulbright Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program and is supported by the people of the United States and partner countries around the world.
