Josh Klein receives Fulbright Grant

PhD. Candidate Josh Klein has received a prestigious Fulbright Grant to study and to conduct research during the 2017-2018 academic year. Klein will be one of fourteen other University of Maryland students and alumni to travel to 10 different countries to serve as English teaching assistants or to work on projects in academic fields such as energy policy, history and public health.

Klein will "will explore the concept of Europe and the transformation of radical German conservatism from the 1930s to 1950s. His research will examine a wide range of Nazi propaganda and postwar periodicals located in the federal archives of Berlin."

"The University of Maryland is very fortunate to be represented by an outstanding group of students who believe in Fulbright’s mission to promote mutual understandings between the U.S. and other countries,” Professor James Gilbert, UMD’s Fulbright program advisor, said to UMD Right Now. “The Fulbright is a fitting award for their hard work, intelligence and spirit of adventure."
