WKU graduate Rachel Reetzke of Franklin has been awarded a Fulbright Grant that will allow her to travel to China and conduct research.

Reetzke, a Communication Disorders graduate, participated in the Chinese Flagship program. While on campus, she worked at the Kelly Autism Program as an instructor and mentor. In summer 2010, Reetzke spent 6 weeks in China volunteering and doing research at the Chengdu Autism Training Center. She is currently studying at Cambridge University as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar.

The flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Government, the Fulbright Program, is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided approximately 308,000 participants — chosen for their academic and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international con­cerns. Currently, the Fulbright Program operates in over 155 countries worldwide.

The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. The Fulbright Program is administered by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State.

Since the establishment of the Fulbright Program, approximately 116,000 Americans and 191,000 participants from other countries have benefited from the Fulbright experience. Currently, the U.S. Student Program annu­ally awards approximately 1,700 grants to U.S. citizens to study, research or assistant-teach overseas.
