BATON ROUGE – On Wednesday, May 16, LSU Chancellor Michael Martin will host a panel discussion on the Fulbright Scholar Program at 3 p.m. in the LSU Student Union Senate Chamber Room. The event, which is open to the campus community, is designed to honor LSU’s former Fulbright scholars and provide information to students and faculty about applying for Fulbright opportunities in the future.


“We strongly encourage our faculty and students to apply for the Fulbright Scholar Program because it’s a great honor that not only brings higher visibility to the university but provides a tremendous learning and research experience,” Martin said.


Panelists for the event will include College of Music & Dramatic Arts Dean Laurence Kaptain, who was a Fulbright pre-doctoral researcher in Mexico from 1985-1986; LSU alumna Aubrey Thibaut, who graduated from the College of Humanities & Social Sciences and the Honors College last May and will be researching in Taiwan this summer; and College of Agriculture Professor Lawrence Datnoff, who researched in Spain in 1996-1997. A representative from the Fulbright Scholar Program, Andy Riess, assistant director for outreach, will also participate in the event.
