Marymount University President Irma Becerra, Trustee Stefan Fedor and his wife Erika, as well as Professor Stephanie Foster were hosted by Fulbright Hungary Executive Director Károly Jókay on September 27th, 2019.

The delegation from Marymount visited a set of partner universities and institutions during their sojourn. Fulbright Hungary and Marymount University have a cooperation agreement, and the first Fulbright scholar from Hungary arrived at Marymount in August, 2019.

President Becerra met a select group of Fulbright Hungary alumni representing many academic fields. Juvenile justice (Professor Miklós Lévay, ELTE Law School), dentistry (Professor Katalin Nagy, University of Szeged), intellectual property law (Dr. Andrea Tóth, Hungarian Intellectual Property Office) and one active US student English Teaching Assistant, Ms. Victoria Tsang, who is working in our EducationUSA advising office and hails from Baruch College.

We hope Marymount University will send us their best student and scholar applicants, and Fulbright Hungary will certainly recommend Marymount to those Hungarians interested in Fulbright grants.
