One of the benefits of Gerard’s Fulbright is the opportunity it will provide him to advance his fluency in Arabic, which he studied for four years in graduate school. His Moroccan year builds on his previous immersion study of Arabic in Yemen in 2007 on a Critical Language Scholarship. Congratulations, Gerard!
