Iman Childs' Story

Iman Childs of The Mary Louis Academy’s (TMLA’s) class of 2010 was awarded a Fulbright grant to conduct research in Rome, Italy for 9 months while making a documentary as a means of communicating her research. Iman said she wanted to update TMLA because the school played such a big role in her success in college.

Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential.

Iman graduated from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, Magna Cum Laude with a major in Radio/Television/Film. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program, which enables U.S. citizens to travel abroad for the 2014-2015 academic year, is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. It is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.

The Program operates in over 155 countries worldwide. Since its establishment in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, the Fulbright Program has given approximately 360,000 students, scholars, teachers, artists, and scientists the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Fulbright alumni have achieved distinction in government, science, the arts, business, philanthropy, education, and many other fields. Fifty-three Fulbright alumni from 12 countries have been awarded the Nobel Prize, and 78 alumni have received Pulitzer Prizes.
