Australia: Project Support to Supplement a Fulbright Award

The Roth Endowment provides supplementary support to one American Fulbrighter working in Australia each year. This award is administered jointly with Australian-American Fulbright Commission. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 award was suspended, however we look forward to presenting an award in 2021.

Daniel Sherrell, of the University of Adelaide, received our 2019 award to support the writing of his book centered around young people’s perceptions of climate change as it becomes an ever more serious threat. His LRE Project Support award will allow him to conduct ethnographic research on the island of Tuvalu concerning the challenges that its inhabitants are already facing as a result of climate change. Upon his return to the U.S., Daniel plans to incorporate this research into his book in order to raise awareness about the ways in which climate change has begun to seriously affect our planet.
