Two CU-Boulder Professors Win Fulbright Awards

Published: July 2, 2003

Norton L. Steuben, Nicholas Rosenbaum professor emeritus at the CU-Boulder School of Law, and Richard Noble, CU-Boulder professor of chemical and biological engineering, have been awarded Fulbright grants to teach internationally.

As a Fulbright Scholar and specialist in tax law, Steuben will lecture at a number of universities in Kiev, Ukraine, during the 2003-04 academic year. Steuben plans to teach courses in comparative tax systems, comparative real estate systems and international business law. He also hopes to assist the Ukrainian government and parliament in the development of tax and real estate systems for the country.

Noble, an expert in chemical separations technology, received a Fulbright Senior Specialists grant to teach environmental science at Hassan II University in Morocco. For two weeks in December, he will teach short courses and visit companies in the area to share his knowledge in the field.

Established in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright program's purpose is to build mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries.

Grant recipients are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement and because they have demonstrated extraordinary leadership potential in their fields. Among the thousands of prominent Fulbright Scholar alumni are Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist; Alan Leshner, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; Rita Dove, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet; and Craig Barrett, CEO of Intel Corp.

Fulbright Senior Specialists is a new program complementing the traditional Fulbright Scholars Program by offering short-term grants to support curriculum and faculty development and institutional planning at academic institutions in 140 countries.
