Along with her 2015 Humanity in Action Fellowship, this is the second prominent honor for academic excellence and leadership for Goldberg.
Luna Goldberg, a May 2015 graduate of Hampshire College, has been offered a Fulbright U.S. Student Program grant to Israel in Interdisciplinary Studies.
Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
This is the second prominent recognition for academic excellence and leadership awarded to Goldberg this spring. She also received a 2015 Humanity in Action Fellowship.
As a Hampshire student, Goldberg pursued work in visual art, social psychology, and museum studies, including the politics of museum spaces and the ways culture is represented in arts institutions. Her Division III (senior thesis) focused on New York’s Lower East Side and the way its history has been rewritten over time to meet the needs of those in the local community.
