Congratulations to Ethan Franzblau ('21) who has received a 2021-22 Fulbright Austria Award. The award combines an English teaching assistantship with research and study. Ethan's research will engage with Austrian-Jewish identity in light of the recent change to the Austrian Nationality Act in 2019, which provides for citizenship for descendants of refugees and victims of the Holocaust.
