During her Fulbright, Wehrman hopes to volunteer with the Bulgarian Trust for Social Achievement, which works to decrease achievement gaps among minority groups, such as the Roma.
  • The flagship international educational exchange program of the U.S. Department of State, Fulbright provides fully-funded opportunities to spend 1 academic year abroad in a specific host country.
