JoAnn Flett, executive director of the Center for Faithful Business, and Cynthia Strong, emerita librarian and adjunct professor for the School of Education, received Fulbright Specialist awards this year.

Strong worked with the six libraries of the University of Dodoma in Tanzania.

Flett, who received her second grant as a Fulbright Specialist, will complete a project at the Entrepreneurship Hub in Trinidad and Tobago.

Each year, around 400 U.S. citizens are selected for Fulbright Specialist awards on the basis of academic and professional achievement, demonstrated leadership in their field, and their potential to foster long-term cooperation between institutions in the U.S. and abroad.

The program, which is part of the U.S. State Department, gives academics and professionals the chance to work on two-to six-week projects around the world.
