University of Rochester Students Win Prestigious Fulbright Grants

May 8, 1996

Two University of Rochester students have been awarded Fulbright Fellowships to study abroad for the 1996-97 academic year.

The fellowships, open to seniors and graduate students, allow recipients to work on self-designed research projects anywhere in the world.

Katherine Jacobs, a senior psychology major from Atlanta, will travel to Austria to study Victor Frankl's theory of logotherapy at the University of Vienna and the Institute for European Studies. Frankl is the author of Man's Search for Meanings.

Mark Rheaume, a senior biological science/biochemistry major from Lawrenceville, Ga., will conduct research in molecular biology at Osaka University in Japan. Rheaume will study in the department of cell biology and anatomy under the direction of Professor Yoshihiro Yonedal.
