KNOXVILLE (AP) - Four University of Tennessee professors will serve as Fulbright Scholars this academic year.

They are: J. Patrick Biddix, Joseph Bozell, Brad Collett and Brendan McConville.

The Fulbright Program is a prestigious international exchange initiative that awards about 1,100 grants to American scholars each year.

Funded by the U.S. government, Fulbright Scholars are chosen based on their leadership and academic merits and their abilities to teach, conduct research and contribute to solutions for shared international concerns.
