UI professors win Fulbright Scholar Awards for teaching, research

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Five University of Iowa professors and one graduate student have been awarded Fulbright Scholar Awards to teach and conduct research abroad during the 1998-99 academic year.

For more than 50 years the Fulbright Scholar Program has offered grants for college and university faculty, as well as for professionals and independent scholars, to lecture and conduct research in countries around the globe. The program's goal is "to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries and thus to assist in the development of friendly, sympathetic, and peaceful relations between the United States and other countries of the world."

The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) administers the Fulbright Scholar Program.

Following is a list of the UI Fulbright Scholars for 1998-99:
Vera A.I. Loening-Baucke, professor of pediatrics, is lecturing and conducting research at Humboldt University of Berlin Charite Hospital, in Germany from September 1998-July 1999.
Clifford C. Missen, a systems analyst and adjunct instructor with International Programs, is lecturing and conducting research at the University of Jos in Nigeria from October 1998-August 1999.
