Babson's First Student Fullbright Scholarship Winner

Babson College is extremely proud to announce that Julian Simcock, Class of 2005, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship. Julian is the first Babson student ever to become a Fulbright Scholar!

The Fulbright Scholar Program is a prestigious and highly competitive program that is designed for U.S. citizens who wish to lecture or conduct research abroad. The program promotes mutual understanding and benefit through contributions to host countries, and upon the return of the grantees to the United States, to their home institutions and/or networks of their professional colleagues.

Julian’s project is entitled, “A Study of Entrepreneurial Resources in the Western Cape”. Julian will travel to South Africa where he will study the business support services currently available to entrepreneurs in the townships of Kayelitsha and Kayamandi, specifically targeting individuals aged 24-34, who, despite no longer having access to secondary schooling, have enormous capacity to effect economic growth in the informal sector through entrepreneurial activity.
