Congratulations to Nazaire Massamba, Fulbright Scholar and Communication Studies Management graduate student here at Emerson! Nazaire is just one of 13 recipients of a Weston Award. The award helps students from Sub-Saharan Africa and South and Central Asia to develop themselves both academically and professionally. While European nations can supplement Fulbright Fellowships provided by the U.S. government, it is more difficult for these regions of Africa and Asia to do so. Recipients can use this award for their studies directly or for extras such as a laptop or travel–things not covered by a Fulbright grant. The Department of Communication Studies is very proud of Nazaire and excited to see what brilliant research he will generate at Emerson College.
