Social Sciences Faculty Member is Named Fulbright Scholar

April 09, 2013

Marco Rimanelli, professor of political science, has been named a 2013-2014 Fulbright U.S. Scholar with a grant for graduate teaching in international relations at the College of Europe (Bruges, Belgium), and for research on NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and the European Union. This grant is co-sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University-Bologna Center in Italy and American University of Paris, France, where Dr. Rimanelli will conduct additional research and deliver speaker presentations. Dr. Rimanelli is part of the faculty of the School of Arts and Sciences at Saint Leo.

A grant from the Fulbright program is highly prestigious both for the scholars and their home institutions. The program was started 60 years ago to enrich the educational, political, economic, social, and cultural lives of countries around the world.

Previous Fulbright award recipients from Saint Leo University include Professor Stephen Baglione, and Associate Professor Stan McGahey, who both teach in the Donald R. Tapia School of Business. Professor Baglione received a Fulbright scholarship to teach a graduate class in advertising in 2010 at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia. He is a professor of marketing and qualitative methods. Dr. McGahey was a Fulbright American Senior Scholar with a teaching and research grant for the 1999-2000 academic year at the Universitat Sveti Kliment Ohridski in Ohrid, Macedonia (Saint Clement of Ohrid University), just before he joined the Saint Leo faculty to teach international tourism. In Macedonia, he conducted an international tourism seminar for juniors and seniors.
