International Center staffers win Fulbright grants
STANFORD -- Two staff members at Stanford's Bechtel International Center have been awarded Fulbright grants for study in Germany.
Ben Fuller, coordinator of the I-Center's Overseas Resource Center, will study Germany's changing international profile at the Free University of Berlin in 1993-94. He also will intern with that university's Office of International Affairs.
Rolando Villalobos, assistant director of the International Center and a foreign student adviser, will participate in an April 13-May 13 seminar for administrators in international education, funded and hosted by the Fulbright Commission in Germany.
The program's goal is to introduce U.S. administrators to developments in German education. It will include site visits to Bonn, Bremen, Hamburg, Rostock and Berlin.
Mellon fellowships go to senior, recent graduate
Stanford senior Ilana Ben-Amos and 1990 graduate Jonathan Schofer have received 1993 Andrew W. Mellon Fellowships in Humanistic Studies from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
Ben-Amos, a native of Bloomington, Ind., is majoring in cultural anthropology. Schofer, of Evanston, Ill., received a bachelor's degree in philosophy/religious studies and a master's in education.
They are among 85 students nationwide to be chosen for the honor, which provides a $12,500 stipend, as well as tuition and fees, for graduate study. The fellowships are designed to encourage outstanding students to join the humanities faculties of America's colleges and universities.
