Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Faculty Member Receives Fulbright Specialists Award

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Dr. Pamela Brouillard, Professor of Psychology at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, has been selected for a Fulbright Specialist project in Kazakhstan to be held for two weeks in August at the Psychoanalytical Association for Central Asia. Recipients of Fulbright Scholar awards are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement.

Brouillard, a Senior Specialist in Global/Public Health, will deliver lectures and provide clinical training to local psychologists and mental health professionals working with both children and adults.

Brouillard is one of more than 400 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad this year through the Fulbright Specialists Program. The Fulbright Specialists Program, created in 2000 to complement the traditional Fulbright Scholar Program, provides short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) to prominent U.S. faculty and professionals to support curricular and faculty development and institutional planning at post-secondary, academic institutions around the world.

The Fulbright Program, America’s flagship international educational exchange activity, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Over its 60 years of existence, thousands of U.S. faculty and professionals have taught, studied or conducted research abroad, and thousands of their counterparts from other countries have engaged in similar activities in the United States. More than  285,000 emerging leaders in their professional fields have received Fulbright awards, including individuals who later became heads of government, Nobel Prize winners, and leaders in education, business, journalism, the arts, and other fields.
