Two Honors Students Receive Prestigious Fulbright Scholarships

April 20, 2017

The John V. Roach Honors College is delighted to announce that Honors students Philip Antinone and Nicholas Barnette are 2017-2018 Fulbright recipients! The Fulbright U.S. Student Program fosters international partnership between the United States and participating countries. The Fulbright mission is to promote mutual understanding, and as Fulbright scholars, Antinone and Barnette will have the opportunity to research, study, teach, and learn in their host communities. The TCU Mission to “think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community” will serve them well as they embark on this important and exciting opportunity.

Philip Antinone

Antinone is a December 2016 Honors laureate and received his bachelor’s degree in music education. As a Fulbright scholar, he will teach English in Italy, and he hopes to “create an academic year of growth and cultural exchange.” Antinone’s additional plans include pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry and pastoring a church in Italy.

Nicholas Barnette

Barnette is a May 2017 Honors laureate, receiving his bachelor’s degree in English and Film, Television and Digital Media. As a Fulbright scholar, he will teach youth performance and theatre in Greece, with a particular focus on “comedy writing and performance workshops.” Following his Fulbright position, Barnette plans to pursue a master’s degree in creative writing.

We sent our congratulations to these Honors students, and we look forward to highlighting their achievements in the future.
