Recent University alum Lara
Finkbeiner, who is in Quito, Ecua-

on Colombian refugees living in
Ecuador, said she ws confident in
her proposal but that waiting until
the spring to find out if she won
took a toll.
"All I remember is tearing it
open and seeing the acceptance
letter and just being overwhelmed
by how grateful, relieved, and grat-
ified I felt," she said in an e-mail
message shortly after getting her
acceptance letter in the mail. "I
worked so hard on the application
and thanks to the support of my
family and my great professors at

recommendations, but also helped

The proposal, sponsored by Rob-

for medical affairs, and Timothy
Slottow, executive vice president
and chief financial officer at the
University, wouldn't rely on public
money, Hopson said.

he was only paraphrasing some

ers are allowing the developers
to use 22 acres of a city park that
borders Lake Michigan for three

plan to travel.
Due to the record-high number
of applicants last year, the Univer-
sity did not offer an interview to
undergraduate applicants because
there were not enough faculty and
staff to meet with each applicant.
Last year was a temporary
exception though, Kehoe said.
Since adding more staff this year,
the University has resumed offer-
ing the interview option to all
applicants, she said.
vost Teresa Sullivan said she was
proud of the University's showing.
"I'm really pleased that the fac-
ulty have really rallied in large
numbers to help get students ready
for the Fulbright competition," she
said. "It's terrific that we had so
many who won, but even better we
had so many who tried."
Mark Tessler, director of the
University's International Insti-
tute, said in a written statement
that the University was delighted
with the grant winners.
"The University of Michigan is
committed to enriching our aca-
demic programs by facilitating
educational and research oppor-
tunities overseas for our under-
graduate and graduate students,"
he said. "We had a large number of
students apply again this year and
are delighted that so many of our
students appreciate the value of
study and research abroad."
