Johns Hopkins communications instructor Laurence Jarvik has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture on journalism and mass media at the State University of World Languages in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, during the 2002-2003 academic year.

Jarvik was one of approximately 800 U.S. faculty and professionals to receive a Fulbright grant to lecture or conduct research abroad this year. He joins more than 84,000 U.S. and foreign scholars who have participated in this program since its inception in 1946.

Since 1999, Jarvik has been an adjunct faculty member teaching managerial communication for the Johns Hopkins School of Professional Studies in Business and Education. Widely recognized as an expert in communications and the arts, Jarvik has frequently testified before Congress on issues such as funding for public television. He has appeared on CNN s Crossfire and ABC s Nightline. His books include Masterpiece Theatre and the Politics of Quality, and PBS: Behind the Screen. His work has also appeared in The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Founded in 1946 by legislation introduced by Sen. J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright Scholar Program is America s flagship international educational exchange activity sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Since its inception, more than 250,000 American and foreign university students, K-12 teachers and university faculty and professionals have participated in one of the various Fulbright exchange programs.
