Johns Hopkins School of Education Dean Christopher Morphew has received a Fulbright Specialist Program award for a project in Poland taking place this fall, the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board announced.
Morphew will travel to Kazimierz Wielki University in Poland in October 2023 to complete a project that aims to exchange knowledge and establish partnerships benefiting constituents both in the U.S. and overseas through educational and training activities in the field of education. He is scheduled to lecture graduate students and faculty on higher education trends, such as master’s-level enrollment in the U.S. and different approaches to doctoral education.
Morphew is one of more than 400 U.S. citizens who share expertise with host institutions abroad through the Fulbright Specialist Program each year. Recipients of Fulbright Specialist awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement, demonstrated leadership in their field, and potential to foster long-term cooperation between institutions in the U.S. and around the world.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to build lasting connections between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The program is funded through an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State. Participating governments and host institutions, corporations, and foundations around the world also provide direct and indirect support to the program, which operates in over 160 countries worldwide.
