Two More Fulbright Awards for BC

Boston College's 2005 Fulbright winners now total 14, eight of them from the German Studies -- a record tally by the small department that annually produces numerous competitive, and often successful, candidates for the prestigious post-baccalaureate awards.

Last week, Erina Megowan '05 became the latest German Studies major to earn a Fulbright. She will go to Germany to study the literature of dissent by East German lyric poets of the 1960s.

In addition, Rev. Scott Steinkerchner, OP, who recently earned a doctorate in theology, was awarded a Fulbright to Nepal. [Read a feature story on Fr. Steinkerchner published in Chronicle last December.]
