Fulbright Iceland

The Fulbright Specialist Program is a great resource for Icelandic universities and institutions that wish to build cooperation with American colleagues. Three Fulbright specialists have visited Iceland over the past months.

Academic writing

In October, Dr. Dennis Riege, professor emeritus of Environmental Science at the University of Maryland, was hosted by the Agricultural University of Iceland at Hvanneyri to conduct training for students in academic writing in English.

Natural Resource Sciences

Dr. Jonathan Trent also arrived in October. Dr. Trent has a PhD in Oceanography and is Adjunct Professor at UC Santa Cruz. He was hosted at the University of Akureyri, where he gave lectures for graduate students in Natural Resource Sciences, and planned and developed sustainability projects in Northeast Iceland.
