Dr. David Schultz Receives Fourth Fulbright Award

Dr. David Schultz was recognized this month by the U.S. State Department and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship with a Fulbright Specialist Program award.

This marks the fourth time Schultz, Hamline's Distinguished University Professor of Political Science and Legal Studies, has received the award. Dr. Schultz's previous Fulbright projects took him to Armenia, Hungary and Lithuania.

"I am honored to now be a four-time Fulbright,” Dr. Schultz said. “I have used all four of them to develop an expertise in Eastern Europe and help forge connections between Hamline and the institutions and countries I have visited. As a result of the Fulbrights I am a better scholar and a stronger teacher."

As a Fulbright Specialist, Dr. Schultz will teach at the University of Latvia School of Law. He will also complete several programs for the State Department and U.S. Embassy, including visiting high schools and talking to local journalists. Latvia borders Russia and is on the NATO front line during the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

Dr. Schultz is one of over 400 U.S. citizens who share expertise with host institutions abroad through the Fulbright Specialist Program each year. Recipients of Fulbright Specialist awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement, demonstrated leadership in their field, and their potential to foster long-term cooperation between institutions in the U.S. and abroad.

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to build lasting connections between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
