Tulane University student Sarah Haensly, a Shoreline native, recently received a research grant from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program to conduct independent research in Mexico in 2017-18.

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program.

Tulane placed a total of 19 students among the semifinalists for the prestigious Fulbrights – 13, including Sarah, were awarded grants and two others were selected as alternates.

Fulbright winners will use their expertise to explore a variety of subjects.

Sarah Haensly's grant is for the study of Economics and Latin American Studies in a Binational Internship in Mexico.

Charlotte Maheu Vail, Tulane’s Fulbright Program Advisor said “We believe that awards like this one can provide students the opportunity to have a richer and more nuanced intellectual experience, whether they are using the Fulbright year as a springboard for what’s next after Tulane or whether this funding supports the dissertation research they’re conducting in one of our graduate programs."
