Fredericksburg, Va. – Chris Musick, director of International Academic Services (IAS) at the University of Mary Washington, has been awarded a Fulbright grant for the U.S.-Germany International Education Administrators Program. As one of 25 recipients, Musick will spend two weeks in Germany to participate in a group seminar.
The program includes briefings, selected government appointments, campus visits and cultural events, and is designed for U.S. university, college and community college administrators whose current responsibilities have a direct relation to international exchanges in higher education. The itinerary includes meetings in Berlin and other cities in eastern and western Germany. The program consists of two parts: a general introduction to Germany and its system of higher education and the opportunity for participants to split up in small subgroups as they focus on their individual professional interests.
Musick earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Ball State University. Earlier this year, he received a $150,000 grant from the Institute for Study Abroad Foundation to support 10 Cultural Envoy Scholarships through IAS.
