Jacqueline Adams '13, a recent graduate of the University of Tennessee, has won a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship. The Fulbright program is an American scholarship program of competitive, merit-based grants for international educational exchange for students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists, founded by United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946.
Adams's grant will take her to Budapest, Hungary, where she will conduct research on how to encourage Budapest residents to adopt technology to limit home energy use. "My studies in Budapest will shape my future career, as I hope to create and implement environmental policy that promotes diplomacy and collaboration across countries," Adams said.
Adams was a Chancellor's Honors student at UT and graduated in 2017 with a degree in psychology and a minor in political science. She is one of 17 UT students offered Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards for the 2018-19 academic year to study, research, and teach in cities around the world.
While at Baylor, Adams was heavily involved in community service, Model UN and Model Congress, and was chosen for the David Abshire '44 Leadership Trip and the Jim Pearce Leadership Trip.
