Brendan T. O'Dell '00, of Beaverton, Oregon, has been awarded a Fulbright grant to study in Germany next year.

O'Dell is a mathematics and German major. He will spend the year at the University of Leipzig in Germany, taking graduate-level courses in mathematics, in preparation for earning his master's degree. He is a member of the mathematics honorary society at St. Lawrence and studied in Vienna during his junior year, through the University's International Education Program.

The Fulbright Program was established in 1946, at the end of World War II, to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries, through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. Its primary source of funding is an annual appropriation made by the United States Department of State. Participating governments and host institutions also contribute financial support through direct cost-sharing, as well as through tuition waivers, university housing, and other benefits.
