Professor Dr. Nirmal Goswami selected as Fulbright Specialist

Posted on

Dr. Nirmal Goswami, Professor in the department of Political Science and Philosophy at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, has been selected as a Fulbright Specialist.


A program of the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Specialist Program is a unique opportunity for U.S. academics and established professionals to engage in two to six week, project-based exchanges at host institutions across the globe.


Specialists, who represent a wide range of professional and academic disciplines, are competitively selected to join the Fulbright Specialist Roster based on their knowledge, skill sets, and ability to make a significant contribution to projects overseas.


Individuals that have been approved to join the Fulbright Specialist Roster are then eligible to be matched with approved projects designed by foreign host institutions from over 150 countries and other areas. 


“I am looking forward to helping small communities in resource-poor environments,” Goswami said. “I want to go where not many American universities go frequently, to establish connections and ongoing partnerships for our students.”


Although he hasn’t selected a specific project yet, he hopes to start in summer. Goswami will work on a project relating to one of his research interests, which include public policy, American politics, urban planning and local electoral systems.


“I am thankful to my department, the university and all who have given support for my many global programs,” he said.  


Goswami is the first Fulbright Specialist from Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
