MOORHEAD — Minnesota State University Moorhead announced that Dr. Nandita Bezbaruah, an Associate Professor of Social Work, has received a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program award for the 2021-2022 academic year from the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
Bezbaruah is one of over 800 U.S. citizens who will conduct research and/or teach abroad through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program.
Fulbrighters engage in cutting-edge research and expand their professional networks, often continuing research collaborations started abroad and laying the groundwork for forging future partnerships between institutions. Upon returning to their home countries, institutions, labs and classrooms, they share their stories and often become active supporters of international exchange, inviting foreign scholars to campus and encouraging colleagues and students to go abroad.
For this fellowship, Bezbaruah will offer a graduate-level course on Ethics and Mental Health at Assam Don Bosco University, Guwahati, India.
