Congratulations to CCM student Jennifer Williams for receiving a Fulbright grant to study in Germany next year!

A second-year artist diploma candidate in Opera Stage Direction, Williams directed CCM’s acclaimed staged production of J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion last November. You can learn more about that performance here and see Williams discuss the production here.

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. It is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

The Fulbright Program provides participants – chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential – with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Grants are available for U.S. citizens to go abroad and for non-U.S. citizens with no U.S. permanent residence to come to the U.S. The Fulbright Program is an important element of the United States’ bilateral relationships with countries around the world. U.S. and foreign governments jointly set priorities for the exchanges.
