Ten MIT students and recent alumni are recipients of awards from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. They will use their grants to conduct research, earn a graduate degree, or teach English abroad.
Talia Khan, a graduating senior with degrees in materials science and music, is one of the recipients at MIT. For her Fulbright grant to Brazil, Khan will head to Manaus, Amazonas, in the Brazilian Amazon to research the materials properties of Amazonian plants used by native peoples. An MIT Emerson Fellow of Jazz Voice, Khan also looks forward to engaging in opportunities to listen to and sing Brazilian music. When she returns to the United States, she plans to pursue graduate studies in the field of green materials.
