We are very thrilled to announce that the member of the LIGS University Board of Directors, John Gilliam Ph.D., was selected for the 2018-2019 Fulbright Scholar Award to teach and pursue research at Mendel University in the Czech Republic.
The Fulbright Scholar program is an American scholarship program for international educational exchange for students, scholars, professionals among others. It is funded by the U. S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and partner organizations.
Dr. Gilliam will leave for the Czech Republic in September, with the initial stage of research beginning before that. His research will be focused on risk assessment and comparing Czech citizens‘ tolerance for risk in comparison to other countries. John will also take the research one step further to examine the differences in the tolerances between genders.
Dr. Gilliam will divide his time in the Czech Republic between his research and his lectures to students at Mendel University.
We would like to congratulate John on his success and wish him good luck with his research!
