Two Ithaca College alums received Fulbright Awards, scholarships given to advance international research and increase mutual understanding between citizens of the United States and other countries.

Melendy Krantz ’09, anthropology and politics double major, will travel to Bangladesh where she will be studying how women's subcultures and caregiver subcultures in Bangladesh interact, and how they affect the role of those who assist with births.

Krantz spent three years preparing her application because of her strong commitment to “learning about the country and the language.”

Amy Cohen ’08, theater arts management major and co-founder of ICircus, will focus her research on circus as an art form in the United Kingdom.

Her ultimate goal is to establish a circus education and performing center in the United States that provides education and outreach to people of all ages, abilities, and demographics.

Congratulations Melendy and Amy!
