Three Princeton Theological Seminary Students Named Fullbright Fellowship Winners

For the first time in Princeton Theological Seminary’s history, three doctoral candidates are the recipients of Fulbright Scholarships for the 2015–2016 academic year.

“This year all three of our nominees succeeded, which is a first for our seminary,” said James Charlesworth, professor of New Testament language and literature and chairman of the school’s Fulbright program.

Mark Dixon, Alyssa Evans, and Philip Forness are all heading to Germany to do advanced research.

Dixon will research manuscripts related to Peter Böhler’s 1738 mission to Africans enslaved in South Carolina. He will spend most of his time in Halle, Germany, where he will study in the Francke Foundations archives.

Evans is heading to the University of Göttingen. She will work with leading scholars in Reformation studies on the first critical edition of Andreas Karlstadt’s letters and works, and will translate and publish several of his writings into English for the first time.

At the University of Munich, Forness will research Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic languages and cultures in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. His project will focus on Thomas the Apostle.

The Fulbright Program, which was established in 1946, is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government.

In 2011, Princeton Theological Seminary was voted an “Elite Fulbright Institution,” which means the Seminary is honored for successively developing students for Fulbright fellowships.
