Entrepreneurship Center Director Awarded Fulbright-Schuman
April 09, 2018
Lewis & Clark Law Professor Samir Parikh, the Kenneth H. Pierce Faculty Fellow and director of Lewis & Clark College’s Bates Center for Entrepreneurship and Leadership, has received a Fulbright-Schuman Grant. The award recognizes Parikh’s innovative scholarship and will allow him to spend six months of his upcoming sabbatical at various institutions throughout Europe.
As a Fulbright-Schuman Scholar, Parikh will research the evolution of European Union insolvency policy and its affect on corporations and sovereign nations, as well as how austerity implementation has effected Spain and Italy.
“I expect that my time abroad will not only further my research, but will enhance what I bring into the classroom and allow me to make significant connections throughout Europe that can be accessed by entrepreneurial Lewis & Clark students interested in studying or working abroad,” Parikh said.
The Fulbright Scholarship Program sponsors U.S. and foreign participants in study or teaching exchange programs around the world in order to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Awards are granted to recipients based on superior academic achievement, leadership experience, and the ability to act as an ambassador on behalf of their home country.
Parikh is one of three law faculty members who have been awarded Fulbright grants for international research during the 2018-19 academic year.
“We heartily congratulate our three professors on their recognition by the Fulbright program,” said Lewis & Clark Law School Dean Jennifer Johnson. “It is a testament to their abilities as legal scholars and educators.”
