J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board awards Christina Espey-Sundt with the Fulbright award
J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board awards Christina Espey-Sundt with the Fulbright award to Netherlands. The Fulbright Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
Our nation needs Christina Espey-Sundt studying the root causes of refugee migration. We need compassionate, smart people who have direct experience with the lives of individual refugees and their families; who have a depth and breadth of academic and legal experience; and who have the ability to examine and compare the complex situations that create refugee flows and the legal and social responses of recipient countries and regions. Christina will play a role in refugee policy for decades.
Christina brings her whole self to her work and study. She is a passionate advocate, a meticulous scholar, and a compassionate human being who cares deeply not only for her clients, but for her coworkers as well. Christina takes on a great deal of responsibility individually while also working well with others. In addition to working with lawyers, Christina collaborates with other professionals in the Interprofessional Center, including social workers and psychologists, to serve the needs of clients not only in their legal cases but in their larger lives.
