May 23, 2022 - Karen Jones, the University of Houston Law Center’s Executive Director of Global and Graduate Programs, will spend part of the 2022-2023 academic year in France after being selected as a recipient of the Fulbright International Education Administrators award.

“I am honored and excited to receive a Fulbright International Education Administrators (IEA) award,” Jones said. “I will spend two weeks in France in the fall to collaborate with other international administrators from all over the world with the purpose to gain knowledge and understanding of French (and other) higher education and research.

In a statement by Paul Winfree, chair of the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, the Fulbright Program is devoted to increasing mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and people of other countries.

“Fulbright is the world’s largest and most diverse international educational exchange program,” Winfree said. “Fulbright alumni have become heads of state, judges, ambassadors, cabinet ministers, CEOs, and university presidents, as well as leading journalists, artists, scientists, and teachers. They include 61 Nobel Laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize winners, 76 MacArthur Fellows, and thousands of leaders across the private, public and non-profit sectors.”
