Making A Difference

Well-done Fulbrighter Albert Manero! 

So proud that Albert and his colleagues at Limbitless Solutions work hard to provide affordable robotic prosthetics to children. What better way than to have Iron Man deliver a new 3D-printed bionic Iron Man arm to 7 year old Alex Pring!

Fulbrighters do make a difference to the world. I too hope that I will be able to do something as remarkable as my fellow Fulbrighter. 

*Daria to Nute Gunray who said that the Fulbright Scholarship is not as prestigious: "Well, the Superhero Iron Man certainly think highly of Fulbrighters. I am sure Alex now has another superhero (in the Fulbright tee) to inspire him."
The Fulbright Program, including the Fulbright-Hays Program, is a program of highly competitive, merit-based grants for international educational exchange for students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists, founded by United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946. Under the Fulbright Program, competitively selected U.S. citizens may become eligible for scholarships to study, conduct research, or exercise their talents abroad; and citizens of other countries may qualify to do the same in the United States.
The Fulbright Program is one of the most prestigious awards programs worldwide, operating in over 155 countries. Fifty-three Fulbright alumni have won Nobel Prizes; seventy-eight have won Pulitzer Prizes. More Nobel laureates are former Fulbright recipients than any other award program.
Take that Nute Gunray!
