Recent Biological Engineering Graduate Receives Fulbright Award
Lillie Haddock, a recent graduate of the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, has received a Fulbright U.S. Student Program award to Australia to study the role of water markets in managing climate change and low-water availability.
Haddock will conduct research at University of Melbourne during the 2022-23 academic year as part of a project that will focus on policy mechanisms to manage declining water availability with the university's Managing Climate Variability and Change Lab Group.
Haddock earned a master's degree in biological engineering this May, having worked with adviser and mentor Brian E. Haggard, professor of biological engineering and director of the Arkansas Water Resources Center.
As a Fulbright participant, Haddock will conduct research, share knowledge and foster meaningful connections across communities in the United States and Australia. The competitive awards consider leadership potential, academic and/or professional achievement and record of service. Fulbright alumni include leaders who are making a difference in their communities and the world, including 61 Nobel Prize laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize recipients and 40 who have served as a head of state or government.
The Fulbright Program is funded through an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments and host institutions, corporations and foundations around the world also provide direct and indirect support to the program.
Since 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 400,000 participants from over 160 countries the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
Entities complete special agreement for FY22 and FY23 operations while working to finalize terms of a Memorandum of Agreement to take effect no later than FY24.
More than 250 students received nationally competitive scholarships, fellowships, grants and internships last year, totaling more than $2.1 million.
The Honors College Fellowship, increased to $80,000 this year, spans four years and is awarded to top young minds, many from Arkansas.
The Department of Food Science and the Center for Human Nutrition are recruiting adults over the age of 18 to participate in a study related to food intake at lunch.
UAConnect access will be suspended at 10 p.m. tomorrow, June 30, for end-of-year reporting purposes.
