National Fulbright Scholarships Awarded

May 2, 2007

Three UNH students have received U.S. Student Program Fulbright Scholarships to conduct research abroad in the coming year.

Whitney Blanchard will spend the 2007-2008 academic year in Trondheim, Norway, working with scientists from the Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research at the Norwegian Institute of Technology (SINTEF) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. With the aid of computer modeling, the team will study and quantify the physical, chemical and biological effects of oil spills in arctic regions.

A 2005 MFA graduate and UNH instructor of painting and drawing, Brett Gamache will travel to Italy this fall to study the works of early Renaissance painters Andrea Mantegna and Piero della Francesca while also producing plein-air landscapes and compositions from imagination. He will establish his studio in the town of Ascoli Piceno and conduct independent study at the University of Ascoli Piceno under faculty member, Salvatore Santuccio.

Hannah Varn will spend the com­ing year in Germany studying with Professor Anton Koch at the University of Tübingen. Under his guidance, Varn also proposes to conduct research which applies the concept of the philosophical ideal to the discussion of global warming, engaging with international scholars of philosophy as well as policymakers involved with climate change.

Many thanks to their faculty mentors who include Nancy Kinner, civil and environmental engineering; Kevin Gardner, UNH Environmental Research Group; Grant Drumheller, Jennifer Moses and Langdon Quin, arts and art history and Willem deVries, David Hiley and Nick Smith, philosophy.
