“I’m proud to have these wonderful students represent CU as U.S. Student Fulbright finalists,” said Deborah Viles, director of the Office of Top Scholarships at CU Boulder. “They were selected from a large pool of semi-finalists for their unique proposals, their expected contributions to their host countries and their ability to serve as ambassadors and leaders. I can’t wait to see where their paths take them.”
