MACON - Two Mercer University students have earned Fulbright grants to address problems in Asia through research and activism. Hannah Vann, a women's and gender studies major from Rome, and Kathryn Doornbos, a biology major from Brasstown, N.C., both earned grants from the highly competitive program to extend their interests beyond graduation. The two are both graduating May 15. Doornbos plans to study tick-borne illness in northern Thailand and Vann will conduct research on the women's movement in Indonesia.
MACON-Mercer University biology professor John Shepherd was recently named a Fulbright scholar, and will travel to Argentina next year to teach and conduct research through the support of this prestigious award.
