​​WUDPAC Fellow Ellen Nigro is one of five University of Delaware students and alumni to receive a prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student Program Award in 2017. From a May 26, 2017 UDaily article by Nikki Laws:

As another academic year comes to an end, a record five University of Delaware students and alumni have learned they will begin a new journey abroad with a prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student Program Award. Four others have been chosen as alternates. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by the Institute of International Education, is designed to increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and other countries. Awards are granted to students on the basis of academic and professional achievement and support nine to 12 months of research, graduate study or an English teaching assistantship in one of more than 150 countries. . . .

Ellen Nigro, a second-year fellow in the Winterthur-University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation, has received a special Fulbright-American Friends of the Mauritshuis Grant to the Netherlands. According to the American Friends of the Mauritshuis, the award is offered to “outstanding American students in paintings conservation.” During her time in the Hague, Nigro will work at the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis and the University of Amsterdam. “I applied to this fellowship because it presents a unique opportunity for me to work and research in my selected field of paintings conversation, particularly as someone who is interested in Dutch and Flemish art,” Nigro said. During her year abroad, she will usher one painting through treatment from beginning to end, analyze the work’s materials and conduct in-depth research on the artist. Nigro said she looks forward to the hands-on skills she’ll build as a budding connoisseur. “The best way to learn is by spending time with excellent examples of painting, closely looking and studying. Since I’m interested in Northern European painting, the Mauritshuis is the perfect place for me to do this.”
