Johns Hopkins Grad Student
Jacquelyn Williamson Wins Fulbright

Jacquelyn Williamson, a graduate student in the Near Eastern Studies Department at The The Johns Hopkins University, has been awarded a grant from the Fulbright Student Program for the 2004-2005 academic year. She is one of seven Johns Hopkins students and graduates this spring to receive a Fulbright grant, one of the most prestigious awards in academia.

Williamson, 31, grew up in both Lexington, Ky., and Morristown, N.J. She works with professors Betsy Bryan and Richard Jasnow at Johns Hopkins. She will use the Fulbright grant to Egypt to examine an unstudied artistic motif in ancient Egyptian art in museums and on important archaeological sites. Fulbright awards are rarely granted to Egyptologists.

Created in 1946, the Fulbright Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange of people, knowledge and skills. The program awards approximately 1,000 grants annually and currently operates in more than 140 countries. Successful U.S. applicants utilize their grants to undertake self-designed programs in a broad range of disciplines including the social sciences, business, communication, performing arts, physical sciences, engineering and education.

Williamson is the daughter Sandra and David Williamson of Morristown, N.J. For more information on the Fulbright program, go to http://www.iie.org.
