SJMC seniors among Fulbright semi-finalists

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2021

Two Drake School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) students are among the three Drake semi-finalists this year for the post-graduate Fulbright Scholarship:

  • Lucius Pham (SJMC) is a semi-finalist for an English Teaching Assistantship in South Korea
  • Elijah Rockhold (Arts and Sciences) is a semi-finalist for an English Teaching Assistantship in France
  • Delainey Thorud (SJMC) is a semi-finalist for an English Teaching Assistantship in the Czech Republic

They were recommended by the U.S.-based Fulbright National Screening Committee.  Their applications now go to the countries to which they’ve applied for final decision-making about an award. Finalists are usually notified in March or April, but the timeline may be affected this year by Covid-19.
