Through exchanging knowledge, experience, and skills, the Fulbright program will also help DSU and the other listed black colleges improve intercultural relations, cultural diplomacy, and intercultural competence between the people of the United States and other countries.

From 47abc: 

“Delaware State University is ringing in the accolades, now announced as a Fulbright Historically black College and University institutional leader.”

“It’s a recognition that honors the partnership between the J. Williams Fulbright program and the nation’s black colleges. The program provides opportunities for students and staff to study and teach or conduct research abroad. We spoke with a Fulbright professor, Dr. Kevina Vulinec, who had a Fulbright scholarship and fellowship.”

per 47abc

Delaware State University is a four-year land grant status college based in Dover, Delaware. 

Of the experience, DSU Professor Dr. Kevina Vulinec, Fulbright alumna, said it’s one of the best things she has ever done: “I really learned a lot while I was there and it was wonderful having that experience to appreciate the culture and to appreciate the scientists that were there. The Fulbright program is an excellent program for anybody that wants to find out more about another country, look at the culture.”
