Dr. Dina Castro has been accepted as a Fulbright Specialist Roster for a four-year tenure (2021-25). She is now among a pool of national specialists eligible to be matched with projects designed by host institutions in more than 150 countries globally.
A program of the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Specialists Program pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise, strengthen institutional linkages, hone their skills, gain international experience and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions. 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.
Once abroad, Specialists partner with their host institution to conduct project activities in support of the host institution’s priorities and goals.
