CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Three University of Northern Iowa faculty and staff members have been named Fulbright scholars for 2013-14. Christopher Martin, Mark Myers and Nadia Korobova have each been selected to undertake research or teach abroad. 

The Fulbright Program, one of the most prestigious award programs in the world, is managed by the United States Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Founded in 1946 under legislation introduced by then Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright Program provides merit-based grants for international educational exchange.

Martin, interim head and professor of communication studies, will undertake research in Hungary. Myers, assistant professor of biology, will conduct research in Colombia. Korobova, associate director for international students and scholars, will participate in the International Education Administrators Program in Germany and France.

"This continued success in the Fulbright Scholars Program has earned UNI a place within the ranks of the finest universities in the United States," said Craig Klafter, associate provost for International Programs.
