The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board has selected Lamar University Director of Undergraduate Research and Associate Professor of Statistics Kumer Das as the recipient of the Fulbright International Education Administrator Seminar award.
Das will travel to France
and Germany for a two-week seminar to learn about the two countries’
educational systems and have the opportunity to network with educators from the
U.S. and those who are international.
“Of course I am super excited for this seminar,” Das said.
“I am humbled and deeply honored, and I believe I can really bring something
important back to Lamar.”
Das hopes to make many connections during his trip.
“When you ask a student what the most life-changing or
enriching experience they had in college was, most will say either or both
study abroad and undergraduate research,” he said. “I think these two high
impact educational practices are incredibly important. Study abroad encourages
college students to become global thinkers; it makes students more open-minded,
global citizens. Undergraduate research refines student interests and helps
students gain applicable skills in their chosen field. Going forward, I hope to
see our school able to send students to do undergraduate research programs
which take them abroad.”
