​Julianna Ly (WUDPAC Class of 2020) is one of seven UD students and alumni to receive awards this year from the renowned program.

From the June 21 article by Nikki Laws for UDaily:

Beginning in August, seven students and alumni will travel abroad as the University of Delaware’s newest Fulbright award winners. The Fulbright Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, is the nation’s premier international education exchange program, designed to foster mutual understanding between Americans and people of other countries. The prestigious award allows young graduates and graduate students the opportunity to conduct research, study or teach English in over 140 countries around the world. . . .

Julianna Ly, a graduate student in the Winterthur/UD Program in Art Conservation, will call the Netherlands home for an 11-month internship jointly offered by the University of Amsterdam and the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis. Just one Fulbright/American Friends of the Mauritshuis Award is offered each year. “I’m really interested in Dutch Golden Age paintings, which is what the Mauritshuis is known for,” Ly said. “Being there is not only going to allow me to be surrounded by these paintings, but I’ll also be able to closely study and treat one myself. In conservation, we often refer to the three-legged stool of art history, hand skills and chemistry. I’ll be approaching this painting from all three of those perspectives.” Ly will study alongside students in a graduate program at the University of Amsterdam. “I’m really excited to immerse myself in Dutch culture and, specifically, to collaborate with my international colleagues,” she said. “We have so much that we can learn from each other.”
