Because when you know a Fulbright Scholar, you brag about it:

 
“The simple purpose of the exchange program…is to erode the culturally rooted mistrust that sets nations against one another. The exchange program is not a panacea but an avenue of hope.”

Senator J. William Fulbright

VODA’s proud to brag on behalf of our former classmate, Bryce Bushman, who has recently started as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.  Bryce is a phenomenal designer, and is now spending three years in Scotland studying urban identity and environmental psychology.   Great work Bryce!
