Carleton second only to U of T in Fulbright scholars

One of Carleton University’s little-known roles in Canada-U.S. relations grows larger this year as eight scholars from the two countries use Fulbright Awards to dig deeper into each other’s culture. The total is second only to the University of Toronto.

The one-year, full scholarships, first started in 1946, create reciprocal educational exchanges and, hopefully, better understanding between the two countries. Starting in September, four Carleton graduates and academics will use Canada-U.S. Fulbright Awards to further studies at U.S. institutions, and four American academics will travel to Carleton.

Heading south are Carleton’s Dr. Stanley Winer, to Duke University to research government fiscal policy; Dr. David Tabachnick, to Portland State University to analyze therapeutic-cloning regulations; Angela Carter, to Cornell University to start a Ph.D. in environmental economics; and Amanda Coe, to Harvard University to complete a Master of Public Administration Professional Development Program on digital policy in government.

Dr. Jeffrey Ayers moves up from St. Michael’s College (Vermont) to study activist groups emerging from the North American Free Trade Agreement; Dr. Joseph McKinney comes from Baylor University to research Canada-U.S. trade dispute mechanisms; Holly Dobbins, from Syracuse University, will start her Ph.D. studies on the creation of Nunavut; and Debra Kolodczak, from the State University of New York (Buffalo), will study the use of the canoe by Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the U.S.
