Upper Bucks resident earns Fulbright award


Revere resident Luke Chadwick of Syracuse University has received a Fulbright U.S. Student Program award to Germany from the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

Chadwick, an almunus of Palisades High School, will support the teaching of English at a German high school and will join a group of 140 English teaching assistants in representing the United States in Germany. He was accepted as one of only 20 applicants to the Diversity Group and will receive a placement in a German city with a high proportion of diverse or migrant students.

Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has given more than 380,000 students, scholars, teachers, artists, professionals, and scientists the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas, and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Chadwick is one of more than 1,900 U.S. citizens who will conduct research, teach English and provide expertise abroad for the 2018-2019 academic year through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement as well as record of service and leadership potential in their respective fields.

Chadwick is set to graduate summa cum laude from Syracuse with a Bachelor of Science in economics and international relations from the Renee Crown Honors Program at the university.
He’s a candidate for distinction in both majors.

He is returning to Germany after his study experience as a high school junior Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange Scholar.
