The U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board have announced the Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards for 2019-20, with 31 Villanova University students and alumni winning the prestigious awards. This marks the largest single-year number of Fulbright awards in the University’s history.
The Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, Villanova University President, announced that Bert Jacobs, Co-Founder and CEO of Life is Good Company, will address the Class of 2019 as the University’s commencement speaker. Jacobs, a 1987 Villanova graduate, will also receive the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa.
Six Villanova students and alumni have been recognized as National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellows. This program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based Master's and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions.
Faculty experts from across the University analyze and comment on some of the day’s biggest news stories, from the 2020 Presidential election to the UN's recent assessment of the one million plant and animal species that are at risk of extinction due to human-related changes to the Earth’s natural landscapes.
