UH law professors named Fulbright Grant recipients

Cougar News Services

UH Law Center professors Richard Dole and Sanford Gaines have been named the recipients of prestigious Fulbright grants to lecture abroad.

The two UH professors are among approximately 2,000 American grant recipients who will travel abroad during the 1999-2000 academic year under the Fulbright Grant program.

Dole said he plans to teach at the Tsinghua University in Qing Hua Yuan, China. Gaines said he will lecture at the University of Aarhus in Denmark.

Fulbright, the foremost educational exchange program in the United States, was established in 1946 under congressional legislation in order to increase understanding between Americans and residents of foreign countries.

Grants are available to any scholar interested in advancing international relations. While some are specifically designated for certain foreign countries and topics, a number of grants are open in a host of fields ranging from art history to medical science, theater and business administration.

The program is sponsored by the U.S. Information Agency, an independent foreign affairs agency in the government's executive branch.
