Kim Sawicki

With a dual-degree in Pathobiology and Allied Health sciences, Kim’s undergraduate work prepared her for a future career in epidemiology, studying the One Health Initiative. As a 2019-2020 Fulbright scholarship recipient collaborating with St. Andrew’s University (Scotland) and the Marine Institute (Republic of Ireland), her work will explore current successful efforts in the EU which preserve cultural coastal fishing communities. The results will be shared with domestic fisheries partners and marine conservation experts who seek to expand sustainable fishing practices.

The Fulbright Schuman Program, administered by the Fulbright Commission in Belgium and jointly financed by the U.S. State Department and the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission awards grants to European citizens to conduct research in the United States and to American citizens to conduct research in the European Union.
