Sametz was recently named a candidate to the prestigious United States Fulbright Specialist program, which send mentor-teachers in their fields abroad to partner with academic institutions. Sametz is the first Lehigh University faculty member to be named a Fulbright Specialist.
The Fulbright Specialist Program (FSP) promotes linkages between U.S. scholars and professionals and their counterparts at host institutions overseas. The program awards grants to qualified U.S. faculty and professionals, in select disciplines, to engage in short-term collaborative two- to six-week projects at eligible institutions in over 140 countries worldwide. Shorter grant lengths give Specialists greater flexibility to pursue projects that work best with their current academic or professional commitments.
