Columbia College Alumnus and Student Awarded Fulbright Scholarships
Emily Tamkin ’12 and Cristian Gonzalez ’10 will study in Germany next year as Fulbright Scholarship winners. Tamkin plans to research Soviet-era legal dissident projects at the University of Bremen’s Research Centre for East European Studies in Bremen. She also plans to go to law school and says the project will merge her interests in law, journalism and the Soviet era. According to the Fulbright website, the grants are designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries” by funding research and by teaching and academic study abroad. Columbia led the Ivy League with 30 Fulbright recipients between 2006 and 2011. Click here to read more about the winners and the awards in the Spectator.
