SCHOOL OF THE ART INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO (SAIC) IS TOP PRODUCER OF FULBRIGHT RECIPIENTS AMONG US COLLEGES OF ART & DESIGN
Chicago, IL — Four recent alumni from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) won Fulbright awards for 2011–12, the largest number of Fulbright recipients hailing from a single U.S. college of art and design this year1. Alexandra Dietz (BFA 2010) is working on a photography project in India; Liliya Lifanova (MFA 2010) is working on a performance piece in Russia; Ania Szremski (MA 2011) is pursuing art historical research in Egypt; and Stephanie J. Victa (MFA 2010) is building sculptural work in the Philippines. From fall 2000 to fall 2010, SAIC helped send 27 students abroad on Fulbright awards, more than any other college of art and design in the nation.
“Our students and alumni are examining the role of the artist in the larger global context, exploring ways that artists and arts scholars can contribute to the dialogue around national and international issues. What better way to study this than by practicing their disciplines around the world?” said Elissa Tenny, SAIC Provost.
“The Fulbright awards are a wonderful acknowledgement of the value of art and design in our global community. I am especially proud of our students who will participate this year and am confident they will make important contributions on this international stage,” said Lisa Wainwright, SAIC Dean of Faculty.
The Fulbright competition is administered at SAIC by the Fulbright Program Advisor in the Office of Career Services.
This year, under the Fulbright program, almost 1,700 American students, artists, and young professionals in more than 100different fields of study have been offered grants to study, teach English, and conduct research in more than 130 countries throughout the world beginning this fall.
