Ringling College Boasts Two Semi-finalists for Prestigious Fulbright Award 

Ringling College of Art and Design is excited to share that one student and one alumni have been named as Semi-Finalists for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the 2022-2023 competition cycle. Their applications will next be forwarded to the country of application for final evaluation later in the spring.

John Dillard, a Fine Arts BFA alumnus, has applied for a Fulbright Study/Research Grant in Sculpture to Belgium. John was previously a Semi-Finalist to Belgium in the 2021-2022 cycle and has reapplied with the knowledge gained from his previous application experience. John has proposed to join the one-year MA program at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in their In Situ department. There, he would plan to study the confluence of international discourse and cultural space within artistic practice.

DeAnna Boyer, a senior Illustration major, has applied for a Fulbright Study/Research Grant in Drawing & Illustration to study in the MA program in Art and Ecology at the Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan, Ireland. DeAnna’s proposed Fulbright project would include the creation of a concept art book that connects the current culture and environment of Ireland with the stories and legends of Celtic history.

Achieving Fulbright Semi-Finalist status is a great accomplishment for our applicants. A small percentage of candidates are recommended as Semi-Finalists following a rigorous review and selection process by the Fulbright National Screening Committee in the U.S. and then those candidates are forwarded to the Fulbright commission in the host country for final consideration. 

Final selections for the 2022-23 Fulbright Awards will be made throughout the spring and notifications will vary depending on the country to which the student is applying. Please join us in congratulating both DeAnna and John on their Fulbright Semi-Finalist status and wish them good luck in the next steps of the process!

The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The primary source of funding for the Fulbright Program is an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments, host institutions, corporations, and foundations in foreign countries and in the United States also provide direct and indirect support. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields. The Program operates in over 160 countries worldwide.

Spaces

The Alfred R. Goldstein Library features a wide variety of quiet, group study, and work process spaces. Looking for a quiet study area? Make your way up to the 3rd floor to look for a book in the Research Collection or peruse the new art magazines while relaxing in comfortable seating. When the weather is nice, you can take your coffee from Roberta’s Café on the first floor to one of the four terraces to work outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Looking for meeting space to get together with a group? Check out the group study rooms, which are available on all three floors of the Goldstein Library. The 10 group study rooms are available to students on a first-come first served basis, or available for booking by Ringling College faculty and staff for group and class meetings.
