Fulbright scholars as professors give students an educational edge

Fort Lewis College Associate Professor of Economics Robert Sonora is spending part of his summer working in Croatia thanks to the Fulbright International Exchange Program. It’s a win-win-win for the people of Croatia, Sonora, and for the future FLC students that find themselves in one of Sonora’s classes.

The experiences and knowledge gained by living and working beyond the borders of the United States through the program can be life-changing, and not just for the Fulbright participants themselves.
