Michael Herrick, B.S., Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning (architecture) will study in Germany. Michael's project is, "Stuttgart 21: Urban Transit Redevelopment in the 21st Century."

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistantships to take place during one academic year in a country outside the U.S.

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others' viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.
