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.

Victor Lopez-Carmen (Ithaca College, Central Queensland Univ.) received our  2018 award to extend his public health research in Australian Indigenous communities to the Lokono-Arawak Tribe in Barbados. Upon his return, he will share the knowledge he has acquired with his Arizona tribe and work towards becoming a doctor, a public health official and an Indigenous rights advocate and leader of his tribe. One day, he hopes to run for Congress!
